1.1 Overview of StudentHome
StudentHome is available to all registered OU students. It’s your personal page that contains all the links and information you’ll need in your learning journey with the OU.
Activity 2 Exploring StudentHome
Explore the key places on StudentHome in. You might find it helpful to look at this alongside your own StudentHome. StudentHome is personal to you, what you see depends on what you’re studying, how you’re funding your studies and when your module(s) starts, so it might not be exactly the same as this example.
Now you’ve explored StudentHome, try updating your profile.
Activity 3 Updating your profile
Log into StudentHome, click on ‘Update personal details’ and then ‘Edit your online appearance’ (under Settings).
Click on ‘Edit online appearance’.
Upload an image that you’re happy to share on your profile. It doesn’t have to be a picture of you: use a picture of a pet or a cartoon image if you’d prefer.
Add the detail you feel comfortable with to the profile and then select the level of visibility for your profile and email address.
Now you’ve got to know StudentHome, let’s take a look at the website that is specific to your module.
