Your profile in Blackboard lets you add a profile photo, adjust your notification settings, and link a cloud storage account.
Once you have added a profile photo, it will be visible throughout Blackboard, such as on your Discussion Board posts or within your Groups. This will help you and your classmates get to know one another and form a community.
Blackboard automatically sends you notifications for the most important activities in your courses, like new announcements, content, grades, or discussions. You can also be notified of upcoming or past due dates. You can view these notifications in the Activity Stream, receive them as an email, or get push notifications from the Blackboard Student app.
In the Global Notification Settings, you can decide which notifications are important to you and how you would like to receive them.
If you connect a cloud storage account, like your NIU Microsoft OneDrive storage, or a personal OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive account, you can submit files from those storage spaces to Blackboard without downloading them to your local computer or mobile device. This allows you to work entirely in the cloud.
