We’ve made a few changes and now the Class Photo Roster is easier than ever to print straight from your Blackboard course site! Try printing a copy before the first day of class. Many instructors like to have a copy on hand during the first week or two in order to make notes (such as preferred name) in the margins next to the photo. It’s a great way to get to know your students by name.

On the lower left hand side of your Course Site under “Course Tools” is a new link called “Class Photo Roster.”

That’s it! One-click access to your photo roster.

These photos are visible only to instructors and instructional staff and come directly from official campus ID card photos. When someone officially enrolls in your course, that person’s picture is automatically added to your Blackboard class photo roster. When someone officially drops your course, that person’s name and photo are automatically removed from your Blackboard class photo roster.

They are confidential records (FERPA protected) and may not be disclosed to third parties without written permission of the student.

Students cannot access or view the photo roster. Blackboard will automatically prevent students from seeing the photo roster.

View the step by step instructions on how to view your photo roster, including the old way via Blackboard Utilities (which is still available).

Don’t like your official Chapman ID photo? Did you know you can submit your own photo to use on your ID?
