Your Profile allows other faculty, students, and staff know who they are collaborating and learning with in a CLE course. Your profile can be accessed directly from the user menu top right or from a link in the user’s Profile page.
Update your profile settings to add a picture, description or personal statement, list your interests, or display an alternate name or phonetic spelling.
This setting determines how you receive any posts from Forums to which you are subscribed, allowing you to receive messages individually or on a daily basis.
This setting lets you decide if you want email copies of posts that are added to forums. If you set this to subscribe, the system will automatically email you copies of new posts in discussions that you post in, unless you manually override it when posting.
Enabling forum tracking means highlighting the posts you have not read yet, which should improve your forum navigation.
The Atto HTML editor is the default editor in the CLE; you have the option to set TinyMCE editor as default.
The Atto editor is set as the default editor because it improves usability and accessibility, and is also mobile-friendly.
The Course Preferences section is set by default to enable the activity chooser dialog box. The activity chooser is a dialog box that is used to add activity or resources to your course. It includes a short description of each activity and resource.
The dialog box is only available to course Managers, Instructors, Editors, and Administrators. If the activity chooser is disabled, separate resource and activity drop down menus are provided instead.
You can set the time format, first day of the week, and number of events to show in the calendar block.
Messaging allows instructors, course staff, and students to send private messages to anyone in the CLE. Adjust your preferences to choose whether you are notified via email or through direct mobile notifications.
