How to upload a profile photo to my Brightspace account

It can be helpful to students and instructors alike to include your photograph with your Brightspace profile. You can use a picture that is stored on your computer and upload it. We recommend using a photograph that clearly shows your face, even if the image is small. You should crop the photo before uploading it to Brightspace, to remove some or all of the background surroundings.
