Personalization

Changing Your Profile Picture

Online learning can make students feel isolated from their instructor.  HBFGSAS encourages instructors to upload a current photo of themselves to their profile, create video lectures, and communicate frequently with their students. This document will show how to change your profile picture in your Populi account. 

Switching Time Zones

Due dates are automatically set for the Central time zone. If you live or will be working in a different time zone, you can alter your settings so that due dates reflect your current time zone. Note that the due dates in your activity checklist will not change; those dates will always reflect the Central time zone.
