Creating Course Card Images/Course Banners in Learn Ultra (Best Practices)

Don't use text in images

Text is not recommended for the course card image. If you use text, center the text both vertically and horizontally in the image. Wrap longer text over multiple lines so the text re-sizes with the different window sizes or mobile device screen size.

Descriptions are required

Please use a description for your image. This description acts as the alternate text read by screen readers making your course banner accessible to all users in your courses. 

Choosing an image

Select an image that represents your course. Be sure to use an image that is not copyright protected and is free for non-commercial use.

Sizing your image

It's best to size your images before you add them. Need a good tool for that? Try using Canva.com's free photo editor. The minimum size for images is 1200 x 300 pixels with an aspect ratio of 4:1. Use this measurement to ensure the best quality image.

Adding the image in Learn Ultra
