Allow participants to hide their identity from other participants
When participating in a course, students might not want to have their email address details visible to other participants, or have their identity visible.
It would be great if a participant could choose to make their Name/picture visible or set it to be Anonymous.
It would be great if they could also choose to hide or make visible their email address to other participants.
I am afraid I have to disagree. Internet and world is moving to unanimous mode in the past 5 year and usually resources where people show they identity gain in quality a lot. Look for Quora or LinkedIn for example. Even YouTube is slowly replacing nicknames with real names.
Also we need to remember that students collaboration is a very important part of educational process. Thus anonymity users will not bring any benefits to anybody.
