Update your profile picture in Blackboard

Beginning this Spring, Blackboard has ended support for their Social Learning Profiles tool, but you can still upload a picture that appears throughout the system. Here’s

Click on your name in the Global Navigation menu located at the upper right corner of the page and select ‘Settings > Personal Information’ on the resulting menu.


On the personal information page, click ‘Personalize My Settings.’


Select the ‘Use custom avatar image’ on the ‘Personalize My Settings’ page, browse your computer for your picture, and click ‘Submit’ once uploaded. Your new avatar image should now appear next to your name in the Global Navigation menu.
