  1. If you choose to communicate anonymously within the course, students will not be able to view your Personal Information Page through the normal link, but Course Coordinators will still be able to view the page through the normal link.

  2. The My Personal Information Page is a special page; it belongs to you, not a particular course. Contents of that page remain the same no matter how many times it appears. All changes made to the page propagate to all links. Bear in mind, as populating your My Personal Information Page for multiple courses, you may not wish to add course-specific information.
