Adding an 'Upload Your Profile Picture' link to the Blackboard Global Navigation

Blackboard Original Global Navigation
Global Navigation

The recent transition from Blackboard’s Enhanced Social Profiles to standard Learn Avatars removed the quick link that was previously available via the Global Navigation Menu. To prevent additional steps for our users, we added an “Upload Your Profile Picture” link to the Tools area in the Global Navigation menu. We did this by adding a Web Link to Learn’s Tool Panel.

Instructions

  1. Navigate to System Admin > Tabs and Modules > Tool Panel.

  2. Click ‘Add a Web Link.’

  3. Title the Web Link “Upload Your Profile Picture” or something similar.

  4. Set the URL to:

https://<yourinstitution>.blackboard.com/webapps/blackboard/execute/myPlacesSettings?command=edit
