The course banner image spans the top of course pages in D2L Brightspace. The banner image is also the course thumbnail in the MyCourses widget on the Brightspace homepage. You can select an image from the Brightspace image gallery or upload your own image. Choose an image that says something unique about your course. Students may come to associate the banner image with the course.
