How do I add a course banner?
The course banner is the image displayed at the top of your course. The banner should clearly state the course title - either via the default text, or in the written course title on your banner image.
An example course banner:
The course banner is 2340 x 340 px. We recommend designing your course banner on free graphic design platform Canva.
Follow the steps below to upload a course banner.
Go to Course Setup > Appearance.
Click Change Banner.
Upload your banner.
If your banner has the course name included in the image, untick Show course name on banner.
Note: If you would like to show the name on the banner, it displays approx 62 characters via the banner. If your course name is longer, we recommend using Canva and not displaying the course name via Appearance.
Adding a class-specific banner
In most cases, you'll just need to add a course banner in your course. However In some cases where you have multiple classes running, you might like to have class-specific banners.
That means that, in classes where you have set up a class banner, students in this class will see only this banner, not the course banner.
