Moodle + Gravatar

We currently create a new Moodle instance each academic year. It can be frustrating that each time a new Moodle is created any profile pictures that were added are lost. There is a way to keep this from happening. It relies on a service called Gravatar.

Gravatar stands for globally recognized avatar. The benefit to using it is that any time you visit a site that supports it your profile image is automatically added. Moodle supports Gravatar. This means that you can create an avatar that will automatically appear each year in the new Moodle. You can set it and forget it (unless you want to update the image). Using Gravatar is free, but does require that you create an account.
