How to upload an avatar in studentcentral

An avatar is an image which signifies your online identity – this could be a photo of yourself, a cartoon, drawing or an image of something that you like such as a colour, texture, plant or animal. Your image ideally needs to be 150 pixels x 150 pixels in size but the upload process will resize your image if needed. If you would prefer to resize the image yourself, these tutorials may be helpful: Windows (Paint), Mac (Preview, see Viewing and Working with Images section).

To upload your avatar:

  1. Go to the Global Navigation on the top-right of the screen and click on Settings
  2. Click on Personal Information  
  3. On the next page, select Personalise My Settings
  4. Use the radio button to select Use custom avatar image
  5. Click on Browse My Computer
  6. Select the file and click on Open
  7. Click on Submit on the top-right on the page 
  8. Your new avatar will now be active in blogs, wikis and discussion boards in studentcentral.
