Moodle Custom User Profile Fields

Moodle has allowed the use of Custom User Profile Fields for years now, enabling Moodle Admins to add their own fields into the Edit profile page.  I've decided to try and make Moodle a bit more social by adding some custom fields for some of the popular Social networks.

 

These fields allow users to enter in their relevant ids for the social networks shown above.  At the moment nothing is done with this data except shown on their Moodle profile page, but the long term plan is to enable social icons throughout Moodle with links to the relevant social networks.

Taking this a step further, I will even look into using available API's to directly integrate content into Moodle to help with user engagement.

In the mean time, if you would like to add Custom User Profile Fields for your Moodle, you can do so in the Administration menu.
