Updating User Profile

Access your profile settings:

  • Click on your own name in the upper right corner, once you are logged in to Moodle
  • Click the Edit Profile tab
  • Once done, make sure to click the Update profile button at the very bottom of the page

Hide/unhide your email from others:

  • Locate Email display in the Edit Profile area. Choose one:
    • Allow everyone to see my email
    • Allow only other course members to see my email - default
    • Hide my email from everyone (instructors will still see it)

Change preferences for forum subscriptions:

Users can subscribe to forums in Moodle, which means that they will receive copies of forum postings via email. You may control some of the preferences:

  • Email digest type, if subscribed to a forum:
    • No digest - you will receive a single email each time a new post is made to the forum(s) to which you are subscribed
    • Complete - you will receive one email per day with full copies of all posts from all the forums to which you are subscribed - default
    • Subjects - you will receive one email per day with subjects only (headers) of all posts from all the forums to which you are subscribed
  • Forum auto-subscribe:
    • No: do not automatically subscribe me to a forum when I post (recommended, since you may always decide later whether to subscribe to the forum or not from right inside the forum area) - default
    • Yes: when I post, subscribe me

    Upload a picture/userpic:

    • Locate Picture of area
    • Click Browse button
    • Locate your picture on the computer and load it into Moodle
    • Click the Update Profile button
      • If you do not see the picture right away, make sure to clear your browser cache and re-login to Moodle
