What are TAGS ?
by System Administrator - Saturday, July 2, 2011, 3:25 PM

Tags are a way for students and teachers to find other people in our courses who have similar interests.

To setup your personal tags:

Edit your Profile page and enter your Interests (preferably as single words or very short phrases) separated by commas. Each item in your list will be associated with a system-wide Tag.

Alternately, you can view a Tag that is already in use (see below) and click on the link near the top of the page that says "Add this tag to my interests".

To find others who have similar interests:

In the Navigation box, under Site pages, click on Tags. You will see a page of various interests, all displayed as links. If you click on any one link, you will see everyone who shares that Tag. If you want to add this Tag to your interests, click on the proper link as stated above.

Feel free to edit the Tag page as well, in order to provide a longer description for the single-word tag that is being used.
