For a more secure experience while taking your online course, there are several areas you may want to consider.
First, discern what amount of sharing in Discussions is appropriate for you. Share only the personal details you are comfortable with. Our courses are set up as safe spaces where online learners respect one another's privacy and do not share one another's contact details or Discussion posts outside the course, yet everyone has their own comfort level. Staying within your comfort level will help your course experience.
