  9. 9. PROFILE SETTINGS The Profile settings (including picture and written description) will be displayed in all the Twinspaces you make part of. Teachers should provide guidelines for the students of how they must write the profile description: what is the language, what type of information must (not) be shared etc. Teachers must also provide guidelines, if necessary, about the profile picture. A picture tells more than a thousand words. Teachers cannot delete the profile picture of the student.
