Upload a Custom Banner to the Homepage

A banner image on the course homepage will draw attention to the course with image rather than text only. When choosing a banner, it should be a wide image so that it displays well. A tall or square image will be significantly cropped.

Note that Brightspace recommends (but doesn’t require) a specific image size for the ideal display quality: 2400 x 960 pixels.
