Adding Images to Your Course

There are a few different ways to add images to your course: If your images are hosted on a server (and have an image URL) or if you need to upload your images from your computer.

If you have an image URL: If you already have an image on a server and have the URL, you can simply click on the raw html button and use the basic html image code. It is highly recommended that you add an alternate label ("alt") for screenreaders and accessibility.

 <img src="http://imageurl" width="100%" alt="image of a book" />


If you just have the image file: 

Step 1: Under the top navigation dropdown for "Content," click own "Files & Uploads."
