Showcase you!

With the enhanced profile, you can better capture and showcase the skills and competencies you develop during your educational journey.

You can carry your educational identity outside the institution and share it with your peers and employers.

Highlight your work experience, projects, competencies, organizations, and skills together in a unique, visual profile. Let the world know what you are capable of.

Your profile starts with a My Cover Page that highlights your information with a collection of tiles that you add. You can also share your work experience, projects, organizations, and competencies. This page is the first thing you or anyone who visits your profile sees.

View some featured profiles to see how you can stand out from the crowd!


Create your profile

When you go to your updated profile for the first time, you'll see prompts to set up an account or log in with your existing MyEdu account.

  1. Accept the terms of service agreement.
  2. Create or update your profile information.
  3. Add tiles to your cover page.
  4. Add your competencies. You can associate your competencies with work experiences and project entries.

When you access your profile for the first time, a welcome screen appears. Make a selection to begin:

  • I Have A MyEdu Account
  • I Don't Have A MyEdu Account

If you have multiple Blackboard Learn accounts, you can combine them into a single profile and use it everywhere.

You can connect to an existing MyEdu account or create a new one. For new accounts, provide this information:

  • First and last names
  • The institution you're attending
  • Your degrees, majors, and concentrations
  • Your graduation year
  • Your email address

For an existing MyEdu account, the system may ask you to reconcile any duplicate information. Select the privacy settings to control who can see your profile.

After the registration process, you're taken to your cover page and you can add tiles.

Privacy settings

If you don't see some of these options, your institution hasn't turned them on.

Set who can see your profile and what they see.

  • Public (recommended): Anyone with a Blackboard profile can find and view you on the People page. They don't have to be enrolled in the same institution, course, or organization as you. Your name and profile picture appear throughout your courses, and users can view a preview of your profile from there. You will also have a Google profile that is optimized for search engines so that others can search for you on the web.
  • Hidden: No users can find and view you on the People page. Your name and profile picture appear throughout your courses, but users can't view a preview of your profile from there.
  • My Institution: Anyone at your institution can find and view you on the People page. They don't have to be enrolled in the same course or organization as you. Your name and profile picture appear throughout your courses, and users can view a preview of your profile from there.
  • All Institutions: Anyone with a Blackboard profile can find and view you on the People page. They don't have to be enrolled in the same institution, course, or organization as you. Your name and profile picture appear throughout your courses, and users can view a preview of your profile from there.
  • Institutions and Employers: Anyone with a Blackboard profile can find and view you on the People page. They don't have to be enrolled in the same institution, course, or organization as you. Your name and profile picture appear throughout your courses, and users can view a preview of your profile from there.

Find profiles

You can find and interact with anyone who has made a profile. If prompted, you must accept the terms of service and provide an email address before you can view profiles for the first time. You can find profiles in these places:

  • From your course: Find out who is also enrolled in your course or organization in the roster and in class contributions to blogs, journals, discussions, and wikis.
  • From the People and Spaces pages in My Blackboard

When you point to a user's profile picture, a preview appears.

  • If you have the basic profile, the preview includes a user's name, profile picture, the field of study, and a portion of the user's description.
  • If you have the enhanced profile, the preview includes a user's name, profile picture, institution name, graduation date, and the top eight tiles.

Select View Profile to see the full profile and interact with the owner. To report inappropriate content in the profile, select the flag icon.

You can't view hidden or private profiles if you aren't enrolled in the same course or organization as the user.


Follow users

If your institution makes the enhanced profiles feature available, you can follow, block, or message users from their profile cards. If you select Follow on a user's profile, their posts and comments are aggregated on your Posts page in My Blackboard. The People page in My Blackboard displays follower requests, who is currently following you, and who you're following.

Use your Posts page to update and have conversations with those who follow you. Select Posts in the list following your avatar to open the page.

  • In the Share Something box, type a message and select Post.
