To keep engaged with my students, I use my digital avatar as one way to do that. It can be a little tricky if you have never done this before. This post will be about how to upload an image or digital avatar to Blackboard.
Start by opening up the email/announcement/assignment in Blackboard that you would like to attach your image or avatar too. As you see, there are many different icons you can choose from. The one circled in the image below is the one you will want to click on.
Once you click on it, a second window will pop up. Before you click on browse my computer, you will want to have your image or avatar ready. If you are using a Bitmoji, go to the Bitmoji extension and drag your desired avatar image to the desktop of your computer.
Once you are prepared click browse my computer and locate the image or avatar you would like to use.
After that, click on insert. It will take you back to the Blackboard email/announcement/assignment you were working on.
As you can see, my avatar is quite large. Using your mouse, highlight the image until prongs surround the image. Once the image is highlighted, you can resize the image or avatar.
With your image resized you can now engage with your students using your digital avatar!
