Avatar photos are an essential first step in cultivating an environment where learners and teachers can recognise and get to know each other, build trust and engage openly and constructively with one another.
The Avatar camera application is the quickest and easiest way for learners and teachers to create an avatar photo of themselves using their webcam. It automatically replaces users’ avatar pictures in Moodle at the click of a mouse. No need for digital cameras and graphics editing software to prepare profile photos for online use. This means that learners and teachers can take those first few steps towards creating their online identities that much more easily and independently, thereby reducing the burden on IT support.
