Staff can create a saved Biography for an instructor that can then be assigned to various locations without having to manually input the details each time.
The way a Biography is displayed on the Public side is related to the screen size and the Course it is attached to. The system has been fully optimized for mobile devices so items may change position to accommodate different screen sizes. If the Biography is associated with a Course with 1 section, the system will automatically have sufficient room to display the details. If it is associated with a Course with more than 1 section, the option View Biography will be show (collapsing the details) and has to be selected to see that information.
To add a Biography to an Instructor, follow the steps below:
- Point to Contacts.
