Change Course Image

The course tiles in the My Courses widget on the TCU Online My Home page display default images assigned from the curated image library provided by D2L. Instructors have options if they wish to change the default image:

  • Select a different image from the D2L image library.
  • Upload your own image.

The course image will display in the My Courses widget, and will display as the course banner on the course homepage. The image will also be available to include in the course components that you export, copy, or import.

Upload Your Own Course Image

Instructors can upload their own image to be used for the course image and banner for their course. All standard image file types are supported. We recommend course images be 2400 x 960 pixels and that they don’t contain text. This ensures they can be resized to look great in different contexts and on different devices, and also adhere to accessibility guidelines.
