Editing Your Moodle Profile

Everyone enrolled in one of my courses has a personal profile page in my Moodle page. This page allows you to post your picture, a personal statement, and other information you would like your peers, students, or classmates to see. It is visible to all other participants in each course your are enrolled in.


Adding a profile picture

1. In the upper right hand corner click on Your Name, Profile.


2. Go to the User details block. Click on Edit Profile.



3. Scroll to the section labeled User picture.



Click the Add button, (it looks like a piece of paper). This will take you to "file picker" where you can upload a file or you can drag and drop a photo from your computer. NOTE: The picture must be in JPG or PNG format. Moodle will crop the image to a 100x100 pixel square. Your Moodle upload limit applies.

4. Once selected, go to the bottom of the page and click Update profile at the bottom of the page.

NOTE: Refresh your browser if the profile image hasn't changed.


Updating other fields

  1. There are numerous preference settings you can adjust.

  2. You may wish to include some of the following information:

      • Web page address
      • IDs for common peer-to-peer and social networking sites
      • Department
      • Phone numbers
      • Campus Address
      • Click the Update profile button at the bottom of the page.


Other information that cannot be updated

Much of the information in the top section of the Edit profile page is drawn from your LU team account. Changes made to this information will not be retained.

      • Username
      • Password
      • First name
      • Last name
      • Email address — this should always be your campus email address
      • ID number field
If you find any of these are incorrect, please contact me to have it corrected.
