Lab 0.4: Post a Clear Headshot Photo of Yourself on Your Canvas Profile (20 pts)
  • On Canvas, go to "Account" -> "Profile" -> Click on the photo and upload a new photo
  • Please select a photo that is a close-up photo of your face to receive full credit.
  • The goal of this assignment is to help me learn your names. If I cannot see your face clearly, the photo will not be helpful.
  • Because the images on my course list are so small, this photo needs to be of your face only -- not your face and shoulders or your face and body -- or the image of your face will be too tiny for me to recognize.
  • For example:

Close Up Photo of Face would receive full credit (20/20)
Photo of face only (Albert Einstein)

Photo of face and shoulders would receive half credit (10/20)

Photo of face and shoulders (Albert Einstein)

Photo of face and body would receive one quarter credit (5/20)



  • Please do not upload a photo that is not of you or you will receive no credit for this assignment
  • Partial credit as described above for a photo of your face and body or if I cannot clearly see your face in the tiny image next to your name on my course list.
  • No profile shots (half credit). Please post a picture of you facing the camera.
  • No credit if I cannot see your face or the photo is not a picture of you.
  • No credit for a photo that I consider to be inappropriate for an academic or professional setting.
  • Feel free to make use of photo editing software to crop your photo. Visit the de Anza computer lab for help using photo editing software.
