My Blackboard profile allows you to share a photo and information about yourself with your classmates. The profile tool is optional –you are not required to set up a profile in order to complete any of your courses at Walden. Creating Your Blackboard Profile

You can access your Blackboard profile through the Global Navigation menu. To open this menu, select the area where your name appears in the upper right corner of Blackboard. A drop-down menu will appear.

For users accessing Blackboard with a screen reader or similar service, this icon title is “Open Global Navigation Menu”.

Now select the Edit My Blackboard Profile tool, which appears by default as a generic avatar icon in the upper left corner of the menu.*



*Once you have set up a profile, this icon will change to a thumbnail of the photo you have selected and the title will change to “View Profile”.

The first time you access your profile, you will be prompted to accept the Blackboard Social End User Terms of Service. Please read these terms, check the box, and the click the “Agree” button to proceed.
