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 1000×150 pixels take up too much space at the top of a page.
To add a banner:
- Go to the Control Panel and click Customization, then select Teaching Style
- In the adjacent window, scroll down to Select Banner
- Click the Browse My Computer button and select the banner image that is stored on the computer, then click Open
- Click Submit
