When navigating an online environment, seeing pictures on other people’s avatars provides a visual anchor. This is true for social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, but they are not the only platforms that can support profile pictures. School-based platforms like Blackboard and Moodle also have this feature.
But is it really that important to have profile pictures for school?
Profile Pictures Add the “Social” in Social Media
Apparently, it is. Profile pictures act as important social visual cues in an online world. Having profile pictures can increase student engagement and allow a learning community to develop.
In fact, students view posts from people with profile pictures as more meaningful than posts from fellow students who didn’t have profile pictures. They also prefer Facebook-like discussions on platforms like Blackboard.
Social presence is a very important aspect of online learning, and visual representation is part of the social process.
The act of socializing means that students commit to self-presentation or self-disclosure to some degree in order for engagement and involvement with others to occur. This makes profile pictures more important than ever in the learning process.
Having Fun with Profile Pictures
This is why uploading profile pictures is mandatory for many schools using online platforms.
However, this doesn’t mean students can’t have a little bit of fun. Who says that your profile picture for school has to be a boring old headshot? You might even be remembered for being the person with a unique profile picture if you decide to get creative.
