Editing your COTROnline profile

To help your instructor and classmates get to know you, it is important that you add a photo to your profile, identify where you live - this is particularly important if you are working in a group because of time zone differences, and tell people a little bit about yourself.

To edit your profile, either watch this video or follow the step-by-step directions below.


COTROnline Profile

  • To begin, click on your name in the top right corner:

  • This will open a menu at the top of the COTROnline page. Select Profile:

  • The profile page has a variety of information. You can
    • edit your profile,
    • check your overall grades in all your courses,
    • see your discussion posts,
    • see when you first logged into the COTROnline site

Profile page

  • To make changes to your profile, click on the Edit Profile link.
  • You can change your email address
Note: this can take quite awhile if you do it in your COTROnline profile and only changes it on COTROnline, so we strongly recommend sending an email to cotronline@cotr.bc.ca AND reghelp@cotr.bc.ca with the new email listed.
  • You can change the City, Country and Time Zone - this will help your instructors know when is the best time to contact you.
  • Use the Description box to tell people who you are - this is optional and the amount of detail is up to you.

Profile edit page

  • To change or add an image to your profile, drag a photo into the to the New Picture box.  You can also click on the Add File icon and search for a file.
    • Make sure the photo is small (ideally about 3 cm tall and 2 cm wide and under 50 KB).
