    Olá Cleia, qual a versão do moodle que você está utilizando? Ao final da instalação é solicitado uma configuração inicial, nela vc marcou o check para utilizar avatar? Como administrador, também é possível acessar essas configurações gerais do bloco.

    Oi Jota! Estou usando o Moodle da EAPE. Acho que não foi feita esta configuração inicial. Sou apenas formadora e só aparece configuração do Bloco Game e dentro dele, não aparece nada relativo aos avatares.

    Olá John, é possível, mas não via aplicação, pelo menos não ainda! Você pode alterar as imagens referente aos avatares no diretório “pix”! Após fazer isso é importante limpar o cachê de imagens!
