View public profile

In SOCIAL > Profiles > Another user's profile you can enter the @nickname of a user whose public profile you want to see. You can also reach this option by clicking on the photo of any user.

The user public profile consists of:

  • A summary of the user record card including his/her photograph
  • Some figures of use of the platform by the user
  • Number of users followed by the user (Following) and number of users who follow him/her (Followers). Clicking on Following or Followers you can see the respective users
  • User's timeline

User profile will be shown depending on the privacy chosen by the user in PROFILE > Preferences > Privacy > Public profile. There are four options of privacy:

  • User: visible for him/her and his/her teachers / his/her students
  • Course: visible for users with whom he/she shares courses
  • System: visible for any logged user
  • World: visible worldwide

Follow users

To follow a particular user you have to access to his/her public profile by clicking on his/her photo or writing his/her @nickname in SOCIAL > Profiles > Another user's profile, provided that the user has given permission to you to see his/her profile, according to his/her privacy level chosen in PROFILE > Preferences > Privacy > Public Profile.

If a user wants that any other user of the platform can follow him/her, he/she should set as privacy level one of the last two options: system or world.

Who to follow

In SOCIAL > Profiles > Who to follow the platform suggests 9 random users to follow, chosen from:

  • Likely known users (9*2/3 = 6 users):
    • Users followed by your followed users, not yet followed by you, and whose privacy is one of:
      • System (any logged user)
      • World (worldwide)
    • Users who share any course with you, not yet followed by you, and whose privacy is one of:
      • Course (users with whom he/she shares courses)
      • System (any logged user)
      • World (worldwide)
    • Users who share any course with you with another role, not yet followed by you, and whose privacy is:
      • User (he/she and his/her teachers / his/her students)
  • Likely unknown users (9*1/3 = 3 users):
    • Random users whose privacy is one of:
      • System (any logged user)
      • World (worldwide)

You can update the list of users to follow by clicking the Update icon in the upper left corner of the box. To follow a user you can click on the Follow icon (a user with a plus symbol) placed next to the user or in the upper left corner of the record card of his/her public profile.
