Always compose your work and save it to your computer using Word or a similar program, then copy and paste your text into your Moodle forum. If you lose your connection, you will still have your work!
Stay organized: create a folder on your computer, Google Drive or, or flash drive for each class. Save the syllabus there for easy offline access and name your documents thoughtfully, e.g. "Jones_ENG1123_Essay1.docx."
