Most of our students will be enrolled in several courses for the semester. This means when students open Canvas, they are looking at multiple courses in their Dashborad. By default, Dashboard courses are ordered alphabetically by course name and your role in the course. To help students find their courses faster, add an image to your course card.
While any user can customise the colour and the nickname for courses in their Dashboard, an image that is added to your course card is applied to everyone in the course. Note, you will need to have one of the following roles in the course to be able to add an image to the course card: Teacher, Teacher Support, Course Director or Course Designer.
