About your Profile e-portfolio account … The Profile system provides students with a personal, secure electronic portfolio, in which you can interact with web-forms to document your learning activities. As it is a secure system, you require a login consisting of a username and password. The login details are not the same as for your university. So remember to record these details somewhere secure.
Your username Your username for Profile will be your email address. Make sure that the person at your university responsible for setting up your Profile account has your correct email details. If you are unsure who that person is, email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your course. email@example.com
Your password Your password will be sent to your email account once you have activated your Profile account. The rest of this tutorial explains how to obtain a password and access your e-portfolio. Please note that the password is in the form of two words separated by a hyphen (-). Make sure you include the hyphen when entering your account. An example of a password is happy-ear
Activating your Profile account When your Administrator enters your email address in the Profile database, you will receive an automated email giving you instructions how to activate your account and obtain a password. Because the email has been generated automatically, it may be labelled as [Spam] or look like spam but do not delete this email. Follow the instructions given in the email. An example given in next slide.
