How do I use the Post image widget?

How to access the Post image widget

Widgets are the tools with which course administrators create and build the pages of their course.

The Post image widget can be used to allow students to share images into a gallery.

In order to access the Post image widget:

  1. Go to the page in your course where you'd like to add this widget.
  2. Select Edit mode.
  3. In the lefthand widget menu, click on the Post image widget icon. (or you can hold and drag it wherever you'd like on the page)   


Note: The Post image widget comes with the Gallery widget automatically added to the page as well.

How to set up the Post image widget

After adding a Post image widget to your page, you can set it up by following the instructions below:

  1. Click on the Setup tab at the top of the  widget
  2. Title: Add a title for the widget.
  3. Label: You can change the label to replace the default "Share your image".
  4. Drop text: You can change the drop text to replace the default "Upload your image".


Note: the images students submit will be displayed in the Gallery widget.

Supported image formats: jpg, png and gif.

Completing activities on a page is how learners make progress and receive their certificates or complete the course.

As the administrator, you can modify how each widget tracks this progress.

To do this, click on the Completion Settings tab on the widget and choose one of the following options:

No completion tracking: This widget will not affect the learner's progress.
Completed when student posts an image: This widget will count as completed as soon as the learner posts an image.


The Post image widget allows learners to post image files to the platform. By default, when a learner makes a post, it is visible to other learners in a class. 



 It is possible to change this default visibility.

You can:

  • control who can see the posts (everyone in the class or just course staff and the author),
  • control when the posts can be viewed (after a certain task is completed or a specific date),
  • let students control the post visibility,
  • allow group submissions.
