Member Profiles

Viewing Member Profiles

Member Profile pages are a great way to learn more about the people who use and contribute to the repository. Each member has an automatically-generated profile page containing that user's name and contact information, as well as information about any content that user has authored or maintained. Members can choose to add additional information to their profiles to supplement this basic information. To learn more about an author of a module or collection, simply click on the author's name to view his or her Member Profile.

  2. Select Edit Profile underneath the heading "Account Maintenance". Using the "Edit Member Profile" form, you can choose to provide a number of optional details including your interests, affiliation, biographical information, and even upload a picture of yourself. Please note that for profile pictures, close-up shots generally work best as all images are displayed at a resolution of 75 x 100 pixels.
  3. Once you have saved your changes, you can see how your profile looks to others by clicking on the green View tab at the top of the form.
