How do I subscribe to a Discussion podcast as a student?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

If your instructor has enabled a podcast in a discussion, you can suscribe to receive the feed in a podcast capturing program. This lesson explains how to add a podcast to iTunes 11.0.
