Notifications inform students and lecturers about new events in Moodle, such as new forum posts or assignment submissions to be evaluated. Users can subscribe to these notifications as email notifications or web-notifications that can be viewed in RWTHmoodle. As soon as you have new web-notifications, the number is displayed next to the bell symbol in the upper right corner. After clicking on the bell, followed by the gear symbol in the new small window, you can also configure your notification settings. Here you can choose which notification you want to receive by email or web notification. Further information can be found in the FAQ.
