  5. Scroll down to see the information you can edit. Sections with a red exclamation mark are required.

    2. Email address: By default, this is set to your MLC account. This is the address that will be used for all notifications within Moodle. It is suggested that you leave the email address set to your MLC address, but it is possible to set it to some other preferred email address.
