How to get email notifications for new posts

Simple click on a board (e.g General Discussion) and click the “Notify” tab and you are instantly subscribed to that board, meaning you will get email whenever there is a new post or reply.

While there is currently no universal option to enable email notifications for the entire forum all at once, clicking the “Notify” tab in each board is an easy workaround.


As a learning faciIitator and Ict addict, I have always been thinking of ways of engaging students and redirecting their free times to productive times through the use of WhatsApp groups. I know this won't work much or at all in some scenes like a community right in the middle of the nigeria jungle where you have all sorts of obstructions and obstacles to free flow or setting up of Internet. Or like a full boarding school with the "No phone policy :-\".
Take these and their likes out, I feel a teacher should be able to tap into the prolific usage of Whatsapp by our secondary students population and be able to interact with the students and get realtime feedback on homeworks and assignments issues. This can also be use to augment for loss of classroom time sometimes. One or two questions can be use as a quiz to test students understanding of classroom topics taught where individual answers sent to the teacher's private wall.
I have not really try it though because of the nature of where I'm teaching. I will appreciate if anyone with the right conditions can experiment this and give feedback. Will love to hear from you  :).

I feel curriculum development should be guided by the developmental stage and  needs of the  society using the curriculum. Hence if adopting this type of curriculum will cater for our current needs as a society with respect to our present stage of development, no problem but if not, I don't see why we should go about adopting such a curriculum. Though there is a possibility of taking the curriculum and modifying it to suit our needs instead of taking it hook, line and sinker. 8)
