Adding a Profile Picture

You can add a picture which will display on your profile page and next to your name in any course activity (forum posts, assignment submissions, etc.). Use good judgement when selecting your profile picture as it is site-wide and thus viewable by other students and users outside of your courses.

  1. On your My Courses page, click Profile under your name at the top.

  1. Description: This is where you can provide notes about yourself that will be visible on your profile page. Profiles are not course- specific, so information here should be more general.
  1. User picture: You can drag and drop your picture from your computer into the New Picture box.
