Your Blackboard app profile is populated with your Blackboard Learn cloud profile information, including your name and picture. You can easily change your picture in the app and replace all instances of your profile picture in the Blackboard app and Blackboard Learn.

Change your profile

You can change your profile picture if your school enables it. You can't change your name or other information because that data is pulled from your school's Blackboard Learn system. Your profile picture shows in other areas of the app such as Discussions and Collaborate sessions. The rest of your profile information isn't shared with others in the app.

  1. Access your profile by tapping your name in the app's main menu.
  2. Tap your picture and take a new photo with your device's camera or select a saved photo.

When you change your picture in the app, it replaces all instances of your picture in the Blackboard app and Blackboard Learn.

Why can't I change my profile picture?

If your school enabled cloud profiles on the Blackboard system, you can't change your profile picture. At this time, the Blackboard app doesn't support profile picture changes when cloud profiles are enabled.
