D2L Profile: Adding Image and Updating Personal Information

One way to make a connection with your students is to add your photo to your Desire2Learn profile. This can be especially helpful when you are offering your course to distance learners. Adding your photo allows your students to place a face with your name.
Complete the following steps to update your profile and add your photo. Once the upload is complete, the image will now appear in the Classlist, Discussion Board posts, and Homepage. Before starting, we recommend that you reduce the resolution of your image to a web-ready size.
