Beginning Dec. 14, 2019, the default course home page in Falcon Online will include a new Instructor Profile widget. This widget will allow instructors to include some brief information about themselves, including a photo. In this post, I will cover how to edit the content of this widget.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This only effects the default course home page. If you are using a custom home page and wish to use this widget, you will need to add it to the homepage or make the default home page the active home page for your course. Contact the Faculty Innovation Center for assistance.
When you first visit your course home page, this is how the widget will look. First, select the button with the three dots in the upper right corner of the widget.
Next, select the "Edit" button as in the next screenshot.
Once you select the edit button, you will have access to all the editable content within the widget as seen in this screenshot.
Let's look at each editable item:
It is very important that you update this widget content prior to the start of classes. If you are using a "Master" shell for your courses, you can update this widget in that course shell, and it will copy over into your other shell when you copy other content.
