Adding a Banner to Your Course

Banners are displayed at the top of the Course Entry Point. Banners can be a great way to personalize or add flair to your Blackboard course. They can also help you and your students easily differentiate one course from another. To set a banner you need to have an image prepared in advance.

Banners should be no larger than 1000 pixels wide, by 150 pixels tall and should be uploaded as a .gif or .jpg file. Banners larger than 1000x150 pixels take up too much space at the top of a page.
