Blackboard: Course Banners

Blackboard Course Banners and Instructions

Course banners must be web-friendly image files, i.e, files ending in one of these extensions: .jpg, .gif, or .png.

The optimal size for a banner image is approximately:

height between 100-250 pixels
width between 600-800 pixels

Feel free to download a banner from this page and upload it to your Blackboard course. Instructions for downloading and uploading are:

  1. RIGHT CLICK on the image and save it to your computer
  2. If you want to add your course name to your banner, or crop one of your own photos for use, you can use an image editor (e.g., Photoshop) or try the easy to use, free website (You can also visit the CTL Dr. Is In for help.)
  3. Next, to upload a banner to your course, follow these steps:
    1. In the Control Panel, click on “Customization,” then click “Teaching Style”
    2. Scroll to “Select Banner”
    3. Click “Browse My Computer,” choose the banner image, and then click “Submit”
