Maintaining and Changing Your Profile

Accessing courseware content through your school or organization's learning management system (LMS)?

If you are accessing the Navigator+ courseware content through a different LMS such as Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, or D2L/Brightspace, please refer to your school or organization’s account user account management process.

Every user in Navigator+ has a Profile page which may be reached from clicking the user drop-down top right and then clicking PROFILE.

In the Profile page, you may edit your profile by selecting the Edit Profile link below User details.


Edit Profile Settings


  • This section is expanded by default. First name, Last name, and Email address are compulsory fields. Depending on your administrator’s settings (in the relevant authentication plugin settings), you may or may not be able to edit these.
  • The other settings – City/town, Country, Timezone, and Description are optional. The administrator might already have entered your city and country when your account was created.
  • The Timezone field is used to convert time-related messages on the system (such as assignment deadlines) from the local timezone (the time in London) to the correct time in whichever zone you have selected.

User picture

This section is optional and allows you to choose your own profile picture. Your current picture is shown here if you have already chosen one.

New picture

To reach the File picker to select a photo for your new profile picture, either press the “Add” button to the top left of the New picture window, the Arrow button in the middle of the window, or drag and drop your file into the New picture window.

Your picture must be in JPG or PNG format (ie the names will usually end in .jpg or .png). Once you have selected your picture, press Upload this file .

NOTE: Make sure that the file is not larger than the maximum size listed, or it will not be uploaded.

Then click Update Profile at the bottom – the image file will be cropped to a square and resized down to 100×100 pixels.

When you are taken back to your profile page, the image might not appear to have changed. If this is so, just use the Reload button in your browser.

Additional names

If the administrator has activated this feature then you will be able to set your alternative or additional names here.


There are several optional fields allowing you to add further details to your profile such as contact details and your website.
