What is a Course Banner?

A course banner is an image that you can add to your course to easily distinguish it from other courses. The banner will display at the top of your course page and on the course card in your Courses area.


For best results, your image must be at least 1200 x 300 pixels with an aspect ratio of 4:1. Please note that images with text do not scale well and your text may be cut off or difficult to read.
