I am both designer and instructor for a Canvas course. I noticed that our Account>Settings>Profile does NOT include BIO section. Why is this? I am seeing video instructions for creating instructor and student bios, but we do not seem to have this interface. Here is a screen shot..
Help us...I am pretty Canvas-savvy, having used it for myriad years..but this one has me stumped.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Happy New Year, @mtnjew !
Thanks to @Bobby2 for pointing you in the right direction! It looks like you may have have just been on the wrong screen to edit your profile in Canvas. I wanted to also provide you with a link to this Guide, How do I edit my profile in my user account as an instructor?, which you may have already seen...but posting it here just in case. I hope this extra bit of information will be of help to you, Lisa! Please let us know if you have any other questions...thanks!
Muchas gracias, hombres... forwarded this info to my colleagues so they know what to do. Will tackle this in the morning.
Cheers and Happy Year!

I had no trouble finding where to enter my bio as an instructor, but how do my students view it? I went into student view to see how it looked, but can't find anywhere to access it. Thanks.
I replied to you in this other thread: Re: Instructor bio - Instructure Community (canvaslms.com).
Make sure that you have your "People" course navigation button enabled in your course (so it doesn't have the crossed-out eye icon next to it).
Hopefully this will be of some help to you. Keep us posted...thanks!
