By default, you will automatically be subscribed to all discussion threads you create in your courses and be notified when new comments are posted to the topic.

You can subscribe to discussions created by TAs or other students in your course (if you allow). If you reply to a discussion, you will automatically be subscribed to discussions and will be notified of updates unless you manually unsubscribe to that discussion. Please also note that you cannot subscribe to individual threads within a threaded discussion.

Notes:

  • You must specify your Notification Preferences to receive updates for subscribed discussions.
  • You cannot subscribe to discussions posted within student groups.
