Updating Your KHS Profile

Page history last edited by Geof Duncan 9 years, 10 months ago

Each staff member at KHS is given a "profile" on the KHS Web site (http://knightdalehs.wcpss.net). This profile lists your name, gives a form for parents to email you with, and gives very basic demographic info. Namely the department you are with and a generic title... ho hum. Boring. See below for an example.

 

Please note that the name has been blurred to protect the innocent...

 

Your profile has a lot more potential than that... you can add personal information, class schedules, and even a QuickBlog. It is this "QuickBlog" area which can be your simple teacher web site. All you have to do is log in periodically and change the info to illustrate what is going on in your class. Below is a screenshot of my profile... my full profile is here.

 

So, how do you add stuff to your QuickBlog? Simple, follow the steps below... Special thanks to my officemate - Frances Patterson - for "volunteering" her account for this tutorial.

 

Step 1: Log in to the Site Area

Choose Staff from the menu on the top of http://knightdalehs.wcpss.net and then select the Staff Site link.

Log in with your username and password. Use the Lost Password? link to reset your password if you don't know what that password is.

Step 2: Update Your Staff Profile

 

 Once you've logged in, Look on the top right side of the page for the Update your Staff Profile link.

You will be redirected to your existing profile. Click the Edit button, and then choose Update Your Profile

There is lots that you can do here. You can modify your name, title, or any other information here.

 

Please let me know if I have your wcpss email listed incorrectly in this section.

 

Notice that you can also reset your Password here too. Simply type your new password in the Password and then retype it in the Verify Password field. When you Update your info the new password will be saved.

 

Click on the Class Schedule tabs if you'd like to inform parents of your teaching schedule. Any items that you DON'T fill out here are not included on your staff profile.

To change your QuickBlog you'll need to access the Additional Info tab. Click on that tab and you can add whatever you would like in the QuickBlog portion. The buttons and editor should feel similar to a word processor. The expectation is that this information will change with the semester. It might be a good idea to update this information weekly to inorm parents as to tests, quizzes, etc.

 

Please note that you cannot upload documents for students to view and that you are limited to only 5000 characters here. If you need more than this, you may want to investigate creating a "real" teacher website - more on that later.

 

Once you have completed your details and filled out the QuickBlog, click the Update button on the bottom of the page. This will bring you to your completed profile...

You can go back and edit your profile again with additional details or simply log out and you're done...

 

So, you want more than just a simple profile page? Head over to my Advanced Teacher Webpages page...
