How do I add an image to a course card in the Dashboard?

If your institution allows, you can upload an image to display behind the course card in the Canvas Dashboard. Accepted images include JPG, JPEG, GIF, and PNG files. For best practice, images should be approximately 262 pixels wide by 146 pixels high.

Images can also be added from Flickr; the search results display images with a Creative Commons public domain license.

When added to a course, images display behind a color overlay in the course card. The overlay color is a user setting defined individually by each user in the Dashboard. Although the color overlay can be completely removed by a user, best practice is to use an image that can display well behind a variety of colors.

Note: Adding an image to a course card is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
