Changes to Course Cards
We've just launched a number of key changes to the way course cards are displayed on the Trainer dashboard. For a long while now we’ve seen our users struggle to comprehend why course cards use the same image that is displayed on the course overview screen, especially considering they have completely different ratios.
To solve this problem we’ve introduced a new image field specifically for the course card. This means you can now add a completely different image for the course card and course overview screens. The purpose each image is outlined below:
- The ‘Course card image’ will display on course cards on the dashboard at a 3:2 ratio (and a 1:1 ratio at a small scale where necessary).
- The ‘Course overview banner image’ will now treated as decoration for your course overview. It won’t display anywhere else.
For existing courses, until you add a new course card image, your course cards and overview screens will continue to share the same image.
To accomodate this change, we need to make some changes to the placement of controls on the cards. Now you can access key controls like share, preview, and learners from the bottom of the card. In addition, we’ll be displaying the name of the folder the course belongs to on the card.
