Managing your profile on VU Collaborate
To see a short video on how to add a profile picture to VU Collaborate, see the video below:
In VU Collaborate, profile pictures are now enabled. Students will have their photo from their Student ID card automatically put into their profile on VU Collaborate and staff will have the option to put a picture of their choice into their profile. When a profile is activated with a picture, it will appear in the minibar at the top of the page as shown below.
Profile pictures of students can be helpful in the classlist so you know who you are marking on the attendance register and can connect with the students, "put a face to a name". Of course, not all students will keep their ID photo and may instead choose a picture they like such as in the classlist picture below, but at least it will not be left as a greyed out sillouette.
To be able to put your picture in your profile, follow the steps and pictures below.
Once you have logged in to VU Collaborate, go to the minibar and click on your name. It will provide a dropdown list of options; choose profile.
Once you are in the section for editing your profile, click on change picture.
You can then upload a picture from your computer onto VU Collaborate.
Step three is optional. You have options to build your profile further with a nickname, your website or blog, links to your social networks and personal information to help others get to know you. Just fill in the boxes with the headings beneath the profile picture.
