Quick Look: Subscribing to Categories and Topics in the Discussion Forum

March 18, 2021 | 0 Minute Read

CoursePlus Quick Looks is a series of video-based posts that demonstrate some of the intermediate to advanced features of CoursePlus. The videos assume a basic level of knowledge with CoursePlus (signing in, setting up a site, adding files to the Online Library).

The Discussion Forum is a powerful tool for building knowledge across a class, answering questions outside of live class sessions, and evaluating student critical inquiry. The larger the class you teach, the more complex it becomes to keep track of all the new posts in a course Discussion Forum. Fortunately, the Discussion Forum has tools that let you get notified via email with copies of new posts. In this post in the CoursePlus Quick Looks video series, we see how you can quickly subscribe to whole categories or individual topics to better stay on top of Discussion Forum activity.
