Is there a way I can be notified if someone in my group posts a message in a forum?
You are able to reveive notifications whenever someone from your group posts a message in a discussion forum. There are two different ways you can subscribe to email notifications:
You can login to the Professional Learning Portal at anytime, and click on the 'Edit profile' link in the 'Welcome' box on the right hand side of the screen. Go to the drop down menu called 'Forum auto-subscribe' and select 'Yes, when I post, subscribe me to that forum.'. Then, scroll down and click the 'Update profile' button.
If you do not wish to receive email notifications for all forums, then you can switch them on for particular forums only. Each time you post to a forum, you will see a drop down menu called 'Subscription'. Select the option 'Send me email copies of posts to this forum'.
