Moodle: Changing Your Course Cover Image


Changing the course cover image in Moodle courses can be used to add interest to your course page. In addition to appearing on the top of the course page, the image appears on the course tile for your course on the My Courses page for anyone who is enrolled in your course. 

To Change Your Course Cover Image:

  1. Open the Moodle course you would like to make changes to.
     
  2. Click the Change cover image button in the top right-hand corner of your course.
    Change course image button
     
  3. A file browser will open; navigate to the image you would like to make your new course image and double-click it (or select it and click Open). It is recommended to select an image of at least 1024px width.
     
  4. Click the green Save button.
     
  5. If you do not see the course image change you will need to logout and log back in to Moodle.
