Can we get a notification of a Discussion reply?

As an instructor, I use Announcements and Discussions to enrich participation. As such, I welcome Discussion replies by students as well as replies from my Announcements.

Presently, if a student replies to a Discussion or Announcement, I have to remember to return to that Discussion or Announcement and check to see if there are any unread replies. This is a pain.

Is there a way to receive a summary notification of any/all replies to Discussions and/or Announcements?
