Setting the default locale within the Manage Locales tool determines the default locale for the entire organization. If a course or user's locale preferences are not set, the system uses the default locale.
You can only have one default locale at any given time. It should be the locale that best reflects the needs of your users and organization. You cannot delete the default locale.
A locale must be active before you can set it as default.
Do one of the following:
- To set the default locale for the organization, from the Admin Tools menu, click Locale Management. From the context menu of the locale you want to set, click Set as Default.
- To set the default locale for a course, in the course offering, click Course Admin > Course Offering Information. From the Locale drop-down list, select your locale. If you want to override users' set locales, select Override locale preferences. Click Save.
