How do I subscribe to a discussion in Discussions Redesign as a student?

You can subscribe to entire discussion threads in your courses and be notified when new comments are posted to the topic. If you reply to a discussion, you will automatically be subscribed to discussions and will be notified of updates unless you manually unsubscribed to that discussion. Please note that you cannot subscribe to individual threads within a threaded discussion.

You will automatically be subscribed to discussions you create in your student groups. You will also be subscribed to any new discussions you create in your course, if your instructor has set course permissions that allow you to do so.  

Notes:

  • You must specify your notification settings to receive updates for subscribed discussions.
  • You cannot subscribe to a discussion if you're required to reply before viewing other replies and have not replied to the discussion. You must reply first and then subscribe to the discussion.
