Add a Banner to a Canvas Course Site

The guides below will help you add a banner to your course and have it appear on your course Home Page.  
Note: You must first have the banner (image file) on your computer (or already uploaded to your Canvas course Files). The Home Page is the first page you and your students see when entering your Canvas course. A banner can be added to any Canvas course Page, Assignment, Quiz, Announcement, Discussion (and Syllabus page). 

First create a page, set it as the Front Page, and then change the Course Home page to display the Front Page.

A banner image can now be added to the Home Page by clicking edit, and embedding the image using the Rich Content Editor.

If you've set the Syllabus page to be your course Home Page you can add a banner image by following the instructions above: "How do I (add) embed images onto a Page using the Rich Content Editor? "
