Profile pictures



In most LMS’s students can upload and manage their own profile photos or thumbnail pictures.

Profile pictures are a tool to make the course community more welcoming and personal. Profile pictures make it easier for the educator and students to get to know each other and help speed up community trust.

In some cases, real faces, including professional quality pictures, are a must. However, in certain cases or as an educational activity, the educator can opt that course participants can choose another profile picture, such as representing geographic locations, pets, automobiles, caricatures, and avatars.

The representations can be discussed and agreed upon together. The photo or graphic representation cannot contain elements that might be interpreted as vulgar, prejudicial, inflammatory, gang-related, violates copyright laws, or are otherwise found to be offensive to other students or to faculty.
