CIRT provides an array of instructional media services to faculty developing blended or online courses. It is recommended that each course displays at minimum, a Course Banner and coordinating Course Card, and an Introduction Video. If you would like additional media to be created for your course, please see the Additional Media section below. Alternatively, you may create your own graphics using Adobe Spark or Canva.

Banners are displayed at the top of the course home page and provide a refined brand identity. Course Cards are designed to coordinate with the banner and display on your Canvas dashboard screen. View additional banner and course card examples here.

Additionally, you can design your own graphics with Adobe Spark or Canva, free and user-friendly graphic design websites. More information below.
