We've made a small, but long-requested change to the "Profile" tool on the class roster page. In the past, clicking on the "Profile" link next to a student's name would take you out of the course Web site and to a separate page with the student's profile information. We've changed this so that when you now click on a "Profile" link on the class roster page, the student's profile information (including a picture, if they have added one) pops up on the page. This allows for a much quicker review of the profiles of everyone in the class.
We encourage everyone to fill out their eLearning profile information, or at least provide a picture. Faculty, TAs and other students really appreciate being able to see pictures of everyone in their class!
