Student discussion groups issue

Question asked by Julia Olsen on Jun 2, 2016

I have two fairly large master's level courses for teachers.  They read one or more articles from the academic literature on a given topic each week, and must respond to discussion prompts throughout the week.  It's important that I have smaller groups so they interact more closely with each other (5-6 students per group rather than 30). 

 

The problem is... I can't see the numbers of responses per group unless I go through at least these steps: Discussions-->"DiscussionName" then the numbers show up for each individual group.  Also, I cannot seem to subscribe to the groups and when I try to, from the main Discussions page, I get a popup saying I must be in a group to subscribe to it.  Screen Shot 1.png

 

 

However there seems to be no way to subscribe once in the group discussion.

My students also are not getting notifications of their colleague's posting as they do when there is just one discussion area.

 

Do you know any solutions for this?
