View and Edit CLE Preferences

Review and modify all your preferences from one page! The Preferences page gives you quick access to various settings they might wish to edit. It can be accessed directly from the user menu top right or from a link in the user’s Profile page.

On the preferences page, you can edit your profile, change preferences for email, Forums, Message and Notification settings from the preferences page.

Review the Preferences Page

When you access the preferences page, you will see a list of settings that you can adjust to help you use the CLE. Review the sections below to learn more about the various settings.



Edit Profile

Update your profile settings to add a picture, description or personal statement, list your interests, or display an alternate name or phonetic spelling.

How do I edit my profile?

Preferred Language

This setting displays the preferred language for the CLE interface, which is set to English by default.

Forum Preferences

Email digest type


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.

Forum auto-subscribe

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.

Forum tracking

Enabling forum tracking means highlighting the posts you have not read yet, which should improve your forum navigation.


Editor Preferences

The Atto HTML editor is the default editor in the CLE and you also have the option to use TinyMCE editor.

The Atto editor is set as the default editor because it improves usability and accessibility, and is also mobile-friendly. You can read more about the Atto text editor on the Convergence blog.

Course Preferences

The Course Preferences section is set by default to enable the CLE_01-10_CLE_Preferences_06.pngactivity 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 CLE_01-10_CLE_Preferences_07.pngresource and activity drop down menus are provided instead.


Calendar Preferences

Here you can set the time format, first day of the week, number of events to show in the calendar block, days to look forward for events and if the filters on this calendar should be saved as the default for all calendars.

Security Keys

A security key or token enables other systems to access the CLE securely. A security key is typically used for secure RSS feeds or web services.

Message Preferences

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.

Notification Preferences

Notifications keep you up to date so you never miss a thing, like forum posts, assignments, and more. Adjust your notifications settings to select which activities you’ll be notified about and you also have the option of being notified by email or the web.
