There free forums in the net lurking around, you can google it. Just create an account then link it to your academic portal. That's just a suggestion. If you really want to create your own forum, then you can start by studying scripts.

Building a forum from scratch would be an interesting project... but long and unnecessary unless you're really interested in learning how to do it.

If you want to get something off the ground quickly, there are some great, free, open-source forum scripts that you can download and install on your own server pretty quickly.

In particular I'd recommend one of two:

I personally like phpBB better, but I've seen SMF come out well also.

If you're determined to create your own, I'd suggest reading Practical PHP Programming. It's a great free book to use to learn php, and there's an entire section (Chapter 21, Section 3) devoted to creating a message board script.

Good luck,

Hey,
well, if I were you, I would deffintly look into using PHP to create a forum. Although HTML coding is much easier, it would probally be a lot more difficult in this situation.

If you google search this, you will find PHP sites, which let you create a forum with ease, although all you will have to do is add a title, customize it, and add to a basic structer, but it will be a lot easier.

I hope you found this useful :)

Actually, using HTML would make the project impossible, not more difficult.

HTML (along with CSS) is just a way to mark-up and present information. It helps you organize content on a website.

In order to have a dynamic content-driven site (like a forum), you need to have a backend script that takes user input, processes the input, places it in a storage point (like a database), and then retrieves it from the storage when someone makes the proper request.

While PHP is probably the most popular scripting language today (and a good one to look for free forum scripts), there are alternative languages you could use. It would be possible to make a forum backend with both Perl and Python to name a couple.
