Blackboard (Faculty) - Banners: Add a Banner to Your Blackboard Course

This document provides an overview of how to add a banner to your Blackboard course.

Banners are a good way to "brand" your course. A banner is an image that appears at the top of your Home Page (Announcements, Planner page, or Content Area) . If you use a Course Pack in conjunction with your text book, you probably already have a banner included. If you do not, you can create your own. See About Banners for two ways to create a banner.
