How do I edit my profile in my user account as an instructor?
Some institutions may enable a feature in Canvas called Profiles. Profiles allows you to update your name, preferred contact methods, and any personal links for your account. Your profile information can be viewed by all users in your courses.
If you want to view a video about personal settings, you can watch User Settings & Profile Picture (Video).
Note: If you do not see the Profiles tab in your user navigation menu, this feature has not been enabled for your institution.
Click the Edit Profile button.
Edit Profile Picture
To upload a profile picture, click the profile picture icon. Learn more about how to upload a profile picture.
Note: Profile pictures are a separate permission from profiles. If you do not see a placeholder picture, your institution has not enabled this feature.
Add Contact Methods
If you have connected to any web services, click the checkbox underneath the web service to indicate how you wish to be contacted via that service . To add additional services, click the Manage Registered Services link. Please note that any selected services will not be shared with other course/group members unless you have previously selected the sharing checkbox in the Manage Registered Services page.
The Discussion icon  automatically appears as a contact method for Admins so users can contact them through Canvas Conversations. It cannot be selected by any other uses.
Note: As created in your user profile, email addresses do not appear as a contact method and are only used for Canvas notifications. Canvas users should contact each other via Conversations.
