Updating Your Moodle Profile

Updating Your Moodle Profile
by Matt Lingard - Friday, 17 October 2008, 4:26 PM
After logging in to Moodle and enrolling on your courses we recommend that you update your Moodle Profile. As well as information displayed to other Moodle users, your profile includes a number of settings that affect how Moodle functions and how it is displayed to you. In particular you might want to change:
  • Your description
  • Your photo
  • Your preferred theme - if you don't like the LSE Moodle colour scheme choose another!
  • Various email & forum (discussion board) settings.
To edit your profile click on your name anywhere in Moodle and choose 'Edit Profile'. For further information see Moodle Profiles - changing your personal settings

New for 2008/9
A recent addition to Profiles is the Interests list. When you add an interest to your profile it creates a "tag" which is displayed in your profile. If two or more Moodle users add the same interest then the tag is listed on the tag index. The top tags are also listed on the Moodle homepage.
