How do I access my profile in Moodle and change settings?

All Moodle users - students and staff - have an editable profile where you can upload a photo and add additional details about yourself. 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.

  1. Access your profile by clicking on your name in Moodle. (Your name is usually visible in the top right-hand corner or at the bottom of the page).
  2. In the Settings block on the left, click Edit profile.
  3. Edit the fields you wish to change. Include a picture by dragging it intoe the field, and you can list your interests as tags, which will link to other staff and students who have chosen the same tag.
  4. Click Update profile at the bottom of the page.
  5. You are able to change settings such as your Preferred Theme which controls how Moodle appears to you. Note: if you change this theme to MyMobile you will need to access Moodle via your mobile device to change this back to another theme.
