Updating your Moodle Profile

Your profile contains general information about you, as well as links to courses you are enrolled in. You can customize your profile information, set some user preferences, and add your picture.

Step 1: To access your profile in Moodle click your name in the upper right of the screen, and from the menu, click on your name.
Step 2:
Click the Edit profile link located just under User details.
Step 3: Check over your personal information to make sure it is correct. Your email address should be set to your NMC account. If you make any changes, scroll to the bottom and click the Update Profile button.

Adding a Picture

Step 1: Add your picture file in the User picture area. You can drag and drop your file from your computer into the dashed box area with the blue arrow, or you can click the Add file (looks like piece of paper with a folded corner) button in the upper left corner of the window.
Step 2: Once you click the Add file button, click Browse… to find and select your file. Once you select your file click the Upload this file button. Step 3: When finished with your profile, scroll down to the bottom and click the Update profile button.

Forum Preferences

To access your Forum preferences in Moodle click your name in the upper right of the screen, and from the menu that pops up, select Preferences and then Forum preferences under User account. You should take some time to check how these are set.
