Force subscription to a discussion?

I see that students are automatically subscribed when they post to a discussion (and they can turn this off).

In most of my online classes, I have a forum open for students to ask questions of me and the whole class (like raising a hand in class). Is there a way I can as an instructor force all students be subscribed for notification of forum posts out of the gate instead of need to go into the forum and manually subscribe (or post and be subscribed)? 

 

Conversely, is there a way I could set a forum for training where when a student posts, he or she is not automatically subscribed, but rather can opt in for subscription if interested, rather than having to opt out?
