How do I view a user's profile in a course as an instructor?
If your institution has enabled the Profiles feature for your institution, Profiles allows you to view a user's name, preferred contact methods, and any custom URLs added to the user's account. Users can edit their profile from the User Navigation Menu.
- If your user details page does not match the layout shown in this lesson, Profiles has not been enabled for your institution. Please reference the user details page lesson.
- Viewing user details in a user's profile is a course permission. Depending on your permissions, you may not be able to view all available information in the user's profile page.
