Subscribe to a Forum
Moodle makes it possible to follow a forum or a discussion thread by "subscribing" to it. Each time a person posts to the forum (or replies to a post) that you're subscribed to, you'll receive an email message. This is really handy for group projects, for instance, as you can be notified when one of your teammates has added a post.
Some forums may be set up so that everyone is subscribed without having the option to unsubscribe. Ask your instructor if you have questions about a particular forum.
To subscribe to an entire forum, use the link in the Forum administration block. To subscribe to a discussion post, click on the Subscribe envelope icon in the forum.
