Answer

When a participant is subscribed to a forum it means they will receive email copies of forum posts.

There are 4 subscription mode options:

  • Optional subscription - Participants can choose whether to be subscribed

  • Forced subscription - Everyone is subscribed and cannot unsubscribe

  • Auto subscription - Everyone is subscribed initially but can choose to unsubscribe at any time

  • Subscription disabled - Subscriptions are not allowed


If you are getting emails regarding your forum, you may want to ask your instructor if she has “subscribed you”, in other words, she has set the forum subscription so that you receive them.
