My Settings: My Tool Options
You can set options for certain course tools. Tool options are personal and apply only to you. The options you set here are default, which means they apply to all of the courses you are enrolled in and are always in effect when you first enter a course. You can modify an option while working in a particular course, but the next time you enter that course, the default setting specified here is in effect.
You may not have access to some or all of the course tools these settings apply to. For example, if none of your courses include the Discussions tool, then the Discussions settings do not apply, although you still see the settings.
You can also specify the language, font, and your time zone.
To change personal tool options:
Step 1: From your My page, click the My Settings link.
Step 2: Click My Tool Options.

- If you do not want your name to appear on the list of online users, select Invisible.
Step 4: Click Save.
