Activity Type - Profile

Activity Type – Profile

You can use the Profile activity in a course as a great way for cohort members to get to know one another. Many cohorts are comprised of members who are geographically dispersed. This activity allows participants to meet and learn about others in different functions and groups within the organization.

When creating a Profile activity:

  •       The Profile activity has several required fields. Action label, title and description must be completed, at a minimum.
  •       Action Label: By default, this field will be populated but it is best practice to make this as specific and appropriate as possible. What will participants do with this activity? Will they read, watch, download? The general rule of thumb is to make sure it is an action verb. This will be displayed in lower case no matter how it is typed in.
  •       Name: Enter the name for the activity. This will display in the course navigation for your participants.
  •       Description:This is the text for your activity.
  •       Use the prerequisite dropdown if there is an activity that must be completed before this activity.
  •       If you would like to display the amount of time that the activity takes to complete enter time in seconds in the duration field. Although you enter the time in seconds it will be displayed in minutes.
  •       When using this activity, the description text is displayed above the profile fields to be completed, however you will not see the profile fields when creating the activity.
  •       When entering text in the description box the text editor bar lets you do basic formatting tricks—different heading styles, boldingitalicizing, underlining, numbering and bulleting, and hyperlinking. For more advanced options, you can click the html button on the far right of the text editor. This will open a pop-up window where you can alter the html manually. Only select this if you are an advanced html user!
  •       Members of the cohort are able to upload a picture, change their name, add their title and location, as well as create a short bio under the “about” section in this activity.

The information that participants share in this activity can be viewed by cohort members in the Your Cohort section of the course home page.
