Change the course name

The Course Offering Name (or "course name") can be changed in order to make it shorter, include the section number(s) or even the instructor's name.


Note: The course name appears to all users in the course - so be sure to consider whether the name is clear and sensible to all of the users.


 

  1. Start by going to Course Admin, in your course shell.
  2. Click on Course Offering Information, found in the Site Setup section.
  3. Locate the Course Offering Name - simply click into the field and edit the text as needed.
  4. Scroll to the bottom and click Save to complete the change.

 

 

The course image & course banner

The "Course Image" is the image that represents your course shell on the My Courses section of the D2L Homepage.

All course shells have a course image.

D2L will randomly assign an image to your course initially, but you can replace it with one from the D2L library, or with one that you upload.

You can also use this course image as a homepage banner, which appears with the course title superimposed on top.


Ideal image size

If you are uploading your own image for use as the Course Image / Course Banner, the ideal size is 2400 x 960 pixels and it shouldn't contain text.

Larger images and images with different aspect ratios are automatically resized appropriately.


 

  1. In the D2L Homepage, locate (but don't click on) your course in the My Courses area.
  2. Move your mouse over the image for your course. An icon with three dots will appear - click on it.
  3. Click the Change Image link.
  4. Use the Search feature to locate an image that relates to your course.
  5. Move your mouse over the image you wish to use, and click the Use this image button.

 

  1. Start by going to Course Admin, in your course shell.
  2. Click on Course Offering Information, found in the Site Setup section.
  3. Locate the Course Image area and click the 'Browse' button.
  4. Click My Computer, to select a file from your computer. (Alternatively, you can select Course Offering Files if you have already uploaded the file to your course)
  5. Click Upload, then locate and select the image on your hard drive. Click Add.
  6. Scroll to the bottom and click Save to complete the change.

You can also use this course image as a homepage banner, which appears with the course title superimposed on top.
