LoudCloud vs Halo | Learn
There is no faculty profile in the Halo | Learn learning management system (LMS). Instructor contact information in Halo is located on the Syllabus page, and cannot be edited from within the system.
See (Halo | Learn) Syllabus for more information.
To set up your faculty profile, click your name located in the upper right-hand corner.
Once on the profile page, there will be four main sections that you can edit to add personal information such as your preferred contact phone number, personal signature, work experience, and education history.
Keep in mind that unless you make your information private, all personal information entered in your profile is visible to any students and GCU Staff that participate in the courses you teach. To change the privacy status of any information you enter, click the lock icon to the right of it. Your profile information does not need to be entered for each class, as it will be part of your faculty profile.
To add or edit personal information, expand the section and click Edit.
It’s important to confirm that your GCU email address is listed correctly in the Personal Information section of your profile. Since the times and locations can vary, you are expected to enter Office Hours on the Roster for each individual class you teach. For instructions on how to add Office Hours, see Viewing the Roster.
Once you are satisfied with the information in the section you are editing, click Save. The Save button will appear at the bottom of any section that is currently being edited.
You should not change the preferred time zone from Arizona regardless of where you are located. Changing your time zone to anything other than Arizona time will negatively interfere with your profile, assignments, quizzes, discussion questions, and responses in LoudCloud. This can cause them to appear overdue or late prior to it being midnight in Arizona.
In addition to editing profile information, you can also add a picture to your profile using the following steps:
- Click Change Picture under your name on the left side of your profile page.
- In the Upload Profile Image dialog box, click Choose File to upload a picture from your computer.
NOTE The accepted file types are .jpg, .png, .bmp, and .gif. The file size cannot exceed 20 kilobytes.
- Once the file has been selected, click Save to complete the upload process.
There is a Profile Completion bar on the right that will display the percentage of what has been completed on your profile. Please note that the information entered is completely voluntary and your profile does not need to be 100 percent complete.
