All undergraduate courses default to the Common Course Landing Page Template. This template helps the university to create a consistent experience for students taking online courses.

Customizing Text + Links
To edit the course landing page click "Edit" in the upper right-hand corner of your course. From there, you can update the text and links. To create a hyperlink, select the text you wish to link and click the chainlink icon. From there, you can choose an internal course link (Modules, Assignments, Files, etc.) or an external link (a website, database, etc.). Watch the video below for more details.
Inserting a Custom Banner
To insert your custom course banner, click "Edit" from your course landing page. Delete the placeholder image. Click the Image icon and insert your banner file. The banner should be the correct size already, but you can also adjust the size if needed.
