To do that, they will look for the Forum "Participants", click on the Sub-Forum "Gamification and digital tools" and finally open a new Topic by clicking on the "Add Topic" button.
As you can see, a forum is just a container for other sub-forums or topics.
So what's a topic then?

Andrea created the topic "New digital tool".
Andrea (first thread): "Hi everyone, I found this incredible tool to [...]";
Camden replies (second thread): "Thank you Andrea. I think this tool is suitable for [...]
To make it even more simple, I'll share with you this file.
