What is a profile page?
This article will guide you through the Profile page and walk you through the features it has to offer.
How do I access my profile page?
Click on your profile image/icon in the top right corner, and then click on My Profile.
The profile page has been designed to easily access all the important pages within OpenLearning, along with enabling you to further personalise your profile to be meaningful for you!
The layout of the profile page has been designed to feature your OpenLearning details along with all your essential information in an organised and refined format. Underneath your profile image, you will see your name and location, which you now have the option to edit. There is also a button that copies your profile page link to share with other users.
If you wish to send someone a direct message, you will see a Send a Message button on the right-hand side of their page (if they have chat enabled).
The profile page consists of five tabs:
Along with your written about section, you can now add a video as well! The video could be an introduction of yourself or just a fun video you would like to share with the OpenLearning community.
You can also add your Education and Work experience.
To learn more about portfolios you can visit How do I manage my portfolio as a learner?
In this section you will be able to view your Fans, Courses Created and Courses Joined. Manage which courses are displayed in the Communities tab, by going to Manage my Enrolments from the courses icon in the top bar.
You will be able to view any achievements you have been issued from courses along with badges and certificates you have received.
This will redirect you to your blog page.
The customization of the profile page
There are also other interactions in which you can customise your Profile Page:
- Change the colour of the theme: Instead of having one of your course banners displayed at the top, you now have the ability to change the colour of your background theme.
- Change your Display Name: If you wish to change your Display Name, you can now easily do so by clicking the edit button next to your name.
