  • Edit Personal Information


    Edit contact information, your first/last name, and/or email address. If you recently had a name change, first officially change with the GSU Registrars Office, then change in GSU Blackboard. You may also change what personal information to make public in the Privacy Options.

    Open the Edit Personal Information text tutorial to learn more.

  • Add Avatar to Blackboard


    This avatar will also show when you submit content to Discussions, Wikis, Blogs, Journals, etc. Some Instructors will require Students to add an avatar in an online setting because they would like to put a face to a name. It makes the environment a little warmer when responding to posts, rather than just seeing a silhouette and a name.
