How to Subscribe/Get Notifications from Course Forums


One of the main benefits of switching the learning management system from Sakai to Moodle is the notifications you can get when one of your students participates in a forum or turns in an assignment. However, there are a few things we need you to do in order to get those notifications.

Since the forums weren't created using your instructor accounts (we set them up for you using the IMU Admin account), you aren't automatically notified when someone posts. So, you just need to subscribe to each of the forums in your course. To do this:

  • Open up your course and go to the first forum you would like to subscribe to.
  • On the left side, under the Site Administration menu, you will see Forum Administration. In the set of links below, you will see the link for "Subscribe to this forum". Click on it.
  • Repeat this for each forum in your course.

Once you do this, you're all set!
