You have a basic eClass profile that allows you to set some important settings, as well as post a photo and other information about yourself.

To make changes to your profile:

  1. Navigate to the user dropdown menu by clicking on your name in the top right corner of eClass and select Profile.

  2. From your profile page, click on the Edit profile link under User Details to access your profile settings. Alternatively, you can also click on the gear icon in the top right of the page header then select Edit Profile.

  3. On the new page that appears, you may enter or modify settings in the following areas:
    1. General - Includes all basic information such as name, contact information, location, time zone, description and other system level preferences. Some settings to note include:

      • First name, surname, email address - See notes below.
      • Email display - By default, this is set to "Allow only other course members to see my email address". To hide your email address, set this option to "Hide my email address from everyone".

      While you may also set your time zone here, please be careful when doing so. If you change your time zone setting, eClass will update built-in times such as quiz times and assignment due dates (any dates that appear in your calendar) into your local time. However, dates entered within documents like the course syllabus, etc. will NOT update. This discrepancy may lead to confusion for submission deadlines. eClass support recommends that you do NOT change your time zone and consider all times on eClass to be set to Edmonton time (Mountain Standard Time or Mountain Daylight Savings Time).

    2. User picture - Allows you to upload a picture. Click on the Add... button to locate the image file on your computer or simply drag & drop the image file into the designated area. For detailed steps on how to upload a profile picture, visit this article.

    3. Additional names - Allows you to set another names.

    4. Interests - Allows you to display your interests as tags on your profile.

    5. Optional - Allows you to list additional contact information. See notes below.

    6. Other fields - Allows you to vie your anonymous ID that can be used in courses with the feature enabled. See notes below.

  4. Click on Update profile when you're done editing.


  • Some of the regions in your profile are pulled directly from your Bear Tracks account and are not editable. This information is required to remain consistent with your personal records. These include your legal names, email address, CCID, institution, department, and anonymous ID. If you need to edit these fields, you must do it in Bear Tracks.
