In Brightspace, you can edit your profile to include additional information about yourself. You can also add a picture that will display in the thumbnail icon next to your name for your activity within Brightspace. Additional items you can add to your profile include social networks, contact information, education and work, and personal information.

Adding a Profile Picture

Adding an image to your profile is a nice way to personalize your profile. This image will appear at the top of the homepage as well as next to your name next to all of your activity in Brightspace. Once you add an image this will be applied to all of your activity in all of your courses in Brightspace. You only need to complete this process once. Most instructors will request that you use a picture of yourself and not an icon. Close up pictures of your face tend to work best. Follow the steps below to add an image to your Brightspace profile.

Step 1: Edit Profile

From the Brightspace Homepage or within any Brightspace course, select your name in the top right corner of the page. Then select Profile from the drop-down.
