Adding visuals to your Canvas course can make an impact on a student’s first impression and create a cohesive theme or brand for your course. We encourage faculty to include a banner and coordinating course card in their Canvas courses. Banners are displayed at the top of the course home page. Course cards are designed to coordinate with the banner and display on your Canvas dashboard screen. (View banner and course card examples here.)
In this workshop, participants create unique banner and course card designs using the free, user-friendly graphic design platform, Canva. Feel free to look over the workshop outline.
