FerrisConnect Avatars

Currently there is an issue with the new version of FerrisConnect that causes the course avatars to not be displayed correctly, as well as not allow them to be updated without special instructions.  If you had previously uploaded an Avatar image, but no longer see it, you will need to upload your image once again. Below are instructions on how to change your avatar within FerrisConnect.

  1. Login to FerrisConnect.
  2. Click the arrow next to your name in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
  3. Click on the avatar icon, circled in red below.

  5. Click Upload New, circled in red below, or if you have already uploaded an avatar you may see it listed.Avatar SS3
  6. Select the image you would like to utilize from your computer and click OpenAvatar SS4
  7. If needed you may need to crop the picture.  This is done by either shrinking/expanding the window utilizing the small grey boxes located in the corners and midpoints or by clicking within the crop box and dragging to a more pleasant location.  When you have finished cropping your image click Change Picture in the lower right of the popup.avatar ss5
  8. Finally click Submit in the upper or lower right side of the page.
