Contacts

Use the contacts tool to add profile information about yourself for students. You can provide information about office hours, phone numbers, and other links to help students find the people who have important roles in your subject.

You can also create multiple profiles, so you can add information about additional teaching staff.

Make the Contact Tool Available

The Contacts tool is available by default in course and subject sites, but needs to be made available if required in an organisation. Go to step 2 below if you are working in a course or subject site.

  1. Make the Contact tool available in an organisation

    • Name the Tool Link Contacts (or the name that suits you) > Select Contacts from the Type drop down menu > Tick Available to Users > Submit.
