Oncourse is retired. For details, see About the Oncourse retirement.

Your blog profile is separate from your profile in the ARCHIVED: Profile tool. If you have blogs in more than one site, you must set the profile for each individually.

To set your blog profile:

  1. To display a picture, first upload the file to Resources; see ARCHIVED: Resources for instructions.

    Note: If you upload the file to My Workspace or another site's Resources tool, make sure the file is publicly viewable, so that participants in the site with the Blogs tool will be able to see it. See ARCHIVED: Making your Resources items publicly accessible.

  2. From within the Blogs tool of the relevant site, click My blog settings.
  3. Enter your profile description in the rich-text editor.

    Note: Pasting text into the rich-text editor should preserve most formatting, but some types of formatting may need to be added manually in the editor after pasting. You can also use the Paste from Word icon to paste from a Microsoft Word document, although this may not preserve every type of formatting. For details, see ARCHIVED: Pasting from Microsoft Word.

  4. To display a picture, paste the URL of your picture into the "URL for my picture" field; see ARCHIVED: Finding the URL of a Resources item.
  5. When you are done, click Change settings.
