What is it?
Figure: An example of the Profile Card widget.
The Profile Card widget provides in-line authoring allowing instructors, facilitators, tutors, and other users to introduce themselves to learners. Your organization may refer to it as the Instructor widget, Teacher Profile widget, Meet your Teacher widget, or the Meet your Instructor widget. Users with the appropriate permissions can upload a photo, add a brief bio, and provide links to social media profiles. Use of this widget is intended for instructors who may otherwise not have the permissions to modify course homepages. Editors can change the contents of each field from the homepage itself; fields that are empty will not display in the widget.
Use this widget when…
…you want to introduce yourself to your learners.
Put important details at the forefront, like your photo, social media details, and other important bio info.
Some more best practices…
- Add your office hours. Even if you’re virtual, let learners know times they can schedule a meeting or times that you’ll open a conference call they can join.
