Content Images

Content images appear as follows:

  • In explore

  • Within search results

  • On a learner's dashboard

  • Course overview

Technical requirements

We recommend having a separate image for each course and learning item to avoid confusion, since some learners perceive repeated images as representative of low quality content. Images should ideally be unique, high-quality photographs or illustrated images that are related to the course material.

The file format must be .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, or .png, with a maximum file size of 10 MB.

Design your image at a ratio of 16:9, 910 x 512 pixels.

Each image should be optimized for mobile. The main design should be within the content safe area for maximum visibility – an aspect ratio of 1:1, 512 x 512 pixels.

Originality: Your company logo shouldn't be used for every course or learning item. Your dashboard will be difficult to navigate for you and others. Images communicate at a glance. Try to communicate the subject matter of that course through a recognizable hero visual.

Suitability: Images should relate to the learning content for viewer prediction. Keep images towards general audiences and avoid offensive content.

Quality: Ensure clear, non-pixelated and distortion-free images.

Make it simple: Limit visual elements and detail for better comprehension.

Avoid text in images: Except for logos, images should not include text or overlays on top of them as they look cluttered and hard to read in search results. The logos must not overlap with the photo or create a messy appearance.

Other Recommendations

The use of illustrations: For illustrations, use iconic and elemental styles rather than detailed or cartoony ones.

Background images and patterns: Background images or patterns should only be used if they add to the comprehension of the course concept and do not simply repeat it. To draw viewers in, incorporate a central point of focus in your images.

Stock photography: Be cautious when using stock photography because images can appear staged, cold, or inauthentic. Choose high-quality stock images that feel natural.
