I've registered and I'm in the Discord. How do I follow along?

How do I control my notifications in Discord?

To stay apprised of updates without getting overwhelmed, we suggest these notification settings: notification settings

You can find them here in the Discord web client: notification-menu

Only course staff can use the remaining notification stream, @mentions.

If you turn off @role/@everyone/@here, you won't see announcements about live events and changes of schedule.

If you want to further reduce distractions, turn off the notification dot.

You can also mute individual channels, leaving only #course-announcements off mute.

Only instructors can post in the #course-announcements channel.

If you furthermore hide muted channels, the Discord interface will only show that channel, but you'll miss out on the chance to discover discussions in other channels.
