    Description

      I have a few students asking for a way to change their online status while working on course assignments. Although there is a way to completely hide Online users block from students (not allowing students to view this block), I want it to be enabled for more social interaction.

      If there is a way to change their online status, I think it will be extremely helpful. In fact, one of my students has argued that not having an option to change his/her online status violate his/her privacy, which I don't agree with him/her, but it raises a little bit of concern.
