Upload link. Navigate to the file to upload it. Please note that the course image is also used as the course banner. To make sure the course image works as the course banner, it is recommended that the image uploaded is 2400 by 960 pixels. Images are automatically resized for the appropriate location and display. Because the image resizes, it is recommended to not use text as part of the image.
