You'll need to be logged into Moodle to access your profile.


What is a Moodle Profile?

Your Profile is how people will see and identify you in Moodle. To access your Profile:

  1. Click the drop-down arrow on the User Menu (available in the upper right-hand corner of any Moodle page).
  2. While holding down the CTRL or Command key on your keyboard, click the Profile option. This will open your profile in a new browser tab so you don't lose your place in the course.
