Create your Profile

Your profile allows you to specify settings for how you engage with Moodle, such as how emails are delivered to you from the site. This is also where you can add information about yourself to let other participants find out more about you. You can include a photo or image in your profile - this will be used to represent you within the site, for example in any discussion rooms or chat sessions you participate in. To edit your profile, follow the instructions below.

  1. To change your profile click on your name in the Online Users block
