How to Determine if You Have Profiles Updates
Updated Profiles Profiles Not Updated
If you see a Blackboard + MyEdu welcome screen or a profile page that allows you to add work experience, you have the profiles updates installed and this page applies to you. If you see a profile page with an area for posts, you have profiles without the updates. For information that applies to your system, see Profiles Not Updated.

About the Updated Profiles

With the updated profiles feature, you can better capture and showcase the skills and competencies you develop during your educational journey. A robust educational profile is important in the changing education landscape. Emphasis on your outcomes and job-ready skills have become a prime metric in gauging success.

With the update, you can carry your educational identity outside the institution and share it with not only your peers, but also employers. Learn profiles are now connected to profiles on MyEdu—a site dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and position them for career success.

Images that say: MyEdu helps students succeed in College, tell their story, and get jobs and internships.

Your profile starts with a My Cover Page that highlights your information with a collection of tiles you compile. You can also share your work experience, projects, and competencies from here. This page is the first thing you or anyone visiting your profile see. 

View some featured profiles to see how you can make your profile stand out from the crowd!
