Your Profile determines what information other users can see about you in a LEO unit. Whereas Messaging allows you to configure notification methods for incoming messages and how you want to receive emails.
The LEO system creates a personal profile for you. You can:
add an image of yourself, or an avatar, which will display next to your name in discussion forums and other unit contributions
add information about yourself and your interests (this will only be available to students in your unit)
specify whether LEO should display your email address to others (this is hidden to other users but available to users in a unit).
select the method LEO should use to let you know what’s happening in your units (configure your notification settings).
NOTE: students are automatically enroled in a LEO unit during the unit creation process, however staff need to be added manually added by the editing lecturer of the unit
A range of messages can be sent to students and staff, however when sending important messages to students it's important to know when they are received by students.
This is dependent on user (student or staff) message notification settings but also scheduled times emails will be sent.
Email copies of forum posts and announcements are sent out every hour at around half past the hour.
forum digests are sent out once a day at 1.30am
Messages are the most instant option, however there will still be a time delay before the message is received in a student email. When sending a message it is important to keep the scheduled times in mind, especially if the matter is urgent.
