Managing Your Profile (MyPower Learning LMS)

Managing Your Profile (MyPower Learning LMS)

Once you have an account, we recommend that you update your profile regularly. Your profile contains information about you that other users can see by clicking on your name. Profile information includes the description of yourself (if you have entered one) your name, location, email address (if you chose to make it accessible) and the list of courses you are enrolled in.

You can edit your profile by clicking your name on the top right corner and or by using the 'edit' tab, or click on "Edit Profile" in the course administration block.

Updating your Profile


Student view of their Profile page's tabs (students may not see all of these tabs)

There are several settings that are accessible from your profile that will help make your use of Moodle more productive:
  1. Email format You can choose to have emails sent from Moodle in Plain text format or Pretty HTML format. HTML format will include images and the Moodle colour scheme in emails, but will be slightly larger in size.
  2. Forum auto-subscribe: If you select yes for this it will mean that when you post a message to a forum, you will be subscribed to that forum and receive email copies of all messages for that forum. You may unsubscribe from forums if you wish as well.
  3. Email digest type: You may choose to receive all emails from Moodle in one daily message. There is also the option to receive either the complete message or just the Subjects from forums you subscribe to.
  4. Forum tracking: This is a useful option to enable. If it is enabled on your Moodle site it will highlight unread forum messages so you can easily see what is new.
