Getting started …

Click to progress through this tutorial

  • This tutorial takes you through setting up your e-portfolio user account on Profile.

  • But first some background …

About your Profile e-portfolio account …

  • The Profile system provides students with a personal, secure electronic portfolio, in which you can interact with web-forms to document your learning activities.

  • As it is a secure system, you require a login consisting of a username and password.

  • The login details are not the same as for your university. So remember to record these details somewhere secure.

Your username

  • Your username for Profile will be your email address.

  • Make sure that the person at your university responsible for setting up your Profile account has your correct email details.

  • If you are unsure who that person is, email with details of your course.

Your password

  • Your password will be sent to your email account once you have activated your Profile account.

  • The rest of this tutorial explains how to obtain a password and access your e-portfolio.

  • Please note that the password is in the form of two words separated by a hyphen (-). Make sure you include the hyphen when entering your account.

  • An example of a password is happy-ear

Activating your Profile account

  • When your Administrator enters your email address in the Profile database, you will receive an automated email giving you instructions how to activate your account and obtain a password.

  • Because the email has been generated automatically, it may be labelled as [Spam] or look like spam but do not delete this email.

  • Follow the instructions given in the email. An example given in next slide.

New User email

To: Sam Smith

  • The email you receive will look something like this. Follow the instructions.

  • Click on the link on the email to go to the Profile website:

Dear Sam,


Profile login page

  • Type in your email address and press enter on your keyboard.

Registering with Profile

  • The first time you enter your username (ie email address), the following screen will appear.

Registering with Profile cont’d

This is part of the password self-management system that allows you to generate a brand new password if you ever forget your password.

My pet’s name


Give a visible reminder of the ‘hidden’ word; in this case your pet’s name.

Enter some ‘secret’ information (eg your mother’s maiden name or pet’s name) in the Hidden word field.

Then, click E-mail my password

Password is emailed to you.

  • When this is done, Profile will send your password to your email address.

  • In this case the password is shiny-door.

  • Go back into your email account and there will be another email for you from Profile, containing your password.

  • The email will look something like this.

Now you can log in …

  • Go back to and type in your username (ie email) and press return

Enter your password ..

  • Enter your password; in this example, it is shiny-door (in reality the password will appear as **********)


  • When you press Enter, you will be taken to your e-portfolio.
