Kunena is a great forum extension for Joomla. We've been using it on iJoomla for a while and we love it. We knew it would make a great partner for Guru.
Each Course/Module/Lesson Can Have a corresponding Kunena Board
Now you can automatically create Kunena boards for every one of your courses. Your teachers and students will be able chat freely about all your different topics, and students can even comment directly from inside the lesson page; the comments will be added to the forum's corresponding board.
Automatically create Kunena boards on Guru install
If you already have Kunena installed when you install this new version of Guru, the extension will ask you if you want to create forum boards for all your courses and lessons. All you have to do is click YES and they're yours.
Comments for your lessons
Comment plugin - $27 (Included in bonuses for a limited time)
On the lesson page, users will see a comment box on which they can ask questions or place a comment. The comments will automatically be added to that lesson's board.
Kunena Integration settings
Kunena Integration Settings have the following options:

Create Boards for Courses Automatically
On lesson Kunena tab you can generate a corresponding Kunena board.
Once you click the button, you will see the path of the board that was just created:
Teachers as Moderators
You can set up Guru so that teachers become forum board moderators when the extension connects the board and the course. Open the teacher's profile on the backend and you will see a new tab marked Kunena forum integration.The tab shows the courses teachers can currently moderate.
