How to Subscribe to a Discussion Board

There are two ways you can subscribe to a Brightspace Discussion Board. One way is to subscribe to the entire Forum or Topic. In this method, anytime anyone posts under the Forum or Topic, you will receive an email alert. The second way is to subscribe to a post you made and only get alerts when someone replies to your post.

Subscribing to a Discussion Forum or Topic

  1. Log into Brightspace using your STAR ID and Password. Select the course.
  2. Go to Communication and then Discussions.
  3. Next, locate the Forum or Topic you would like to subscribe to, click on the black arrow (1) and select Subscribe. You can do the same thing to a Topic (3).
