Making the most of your Dashboard


Every user can set up their My Learning dashboard to suit their learning needs. You can add and remove dashboard panels until you have just the panels you want.

For very young users, why not remove all panels except Quick links? Then gradually add panels as learning needs change.





Your panels can be customised to look like you want them to.




To complete your dashboard set a profile picture. This is particularly important for young users who can use their profile picture to help log in using 'Group Login'.
