Moodle Student FAQ
What is a Moodle Profile?
Your Profile is how people will see and identify you in Moodle. To access your Profile:
- Click the drop-down arrow on the User Menu (available in the upper right-hand corner of any Moodle page).
- 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.
You can use Profiles to:
- access Moodle courses you have already been enrolled in.
- identify your classmates in forums or other group activities.
- change how your account behaves and looks to others.
