Customize your course Dashboard card in Canvas to help students find your course.

Dashboard Cards in Canvas

Adding a Dashboard card can help students quickly recognize your course on the Canvas Dashboard.

To add a dashboard card to a course:

  1. Prepare your image. Canvas recommends the image be 262 pixels x 146 pixels, but it can be larger (ours are 524px x 292px to ensure adequate resolution).
  2. Go to Settings in the left navigation bar of your course.
  3. At the top of the Settings page is a box for an image. Click the 3-dot “snowman” and you will be prompted to select or drag an image to upload it.
  4. Save your changes by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking the Update Course Details button.

Find downloadable samples and more design ideas in the Faculty Resource Center in Canvas.
