Blackboard Release 9 - What's NEW?
Where do I find it?
What's new about it?
Banners were available in previous versions of Blackboard. However, in previous versions, the banner was always displayed on the top Announcements page. In Blackboard 9, the course
banner is located at the top of the Course Entry Point, no matter what page it is.
How do I use it?
Note: With Edit Mode - On, you may see a dark gray background surrounding your banner. Turn Edit Mode - Off to see the student view.
Need help creating a banner?
The banner must be in .gif, .png, or .jpg format.
Recommended size? Because users have different screen resolutions, you don't want a banner that will cause users to scroll. A good size is approximately 480 pixels wide x 80 pixels high.
