Is the Blackboard Class Photo Roster Tool Visible to Students?

The class photo roster is only visible to instructors. Neither students nor Teaching Assistants in Blackboard can see the Photo Roster.

Student photos in Blackboard are considered FERPA protected data. These photos are to be used by faculty as a means to check attendance, learn the students name and pronunciation if provided, and validate identity during examinations only.
