Images / Banner Photos
Use the Image feature in a Content Area to add a graphic such as a banner, photo, or graphic to your Content Area.
Instructors may add a banner image like the example shown above to the top of any Content Area page such as the Course Homepage (a.k.a. course entry point). You may request a custom banner image (using an Essentials istockphoto.com image of your choosing) for your BbLearn course from us at no charge if you are a University of Idaho BbLearn Instructor. Or you may create an appropriate 600px x 200px JPG, PNG or GIF image on your own using one of the online image editors listed on the right. You may add the banner image to your course following the directions below.
