myLesley Profile Pictures - February 5, 2020 - COMPLETED
Blackboard discontinued the Social Profiles feature in myLesley on December 31, 2019. They are reverting to a simpler systems which allows you to add a profile picture and personalize your settings. Blackboard did not immediately turn off Social Profiles as expected. However, they will be disabled as part of the February 5th update to myLesley. You will need to upload a new profile photo to myLesley as Blackboard is unable to easily migrate the prior photos.
