Do you want automatic email alerts when activities are added or updated in your Moodle course? If so, you can sign up for Event Monitoring for one or more of your courses. Students, faculty, and others enrolled in a class can subscribe to any of several monitoring rules to get these automated messages.

To get automated email notifications:

  1. Click on your profile (name) in Moodle’s upper right corner and select Preferences from the dropdown menu.
