How can I change the cover of my Canvas course folder to a photo rather than a color?
I am not 100% sure, but are you referring to the course images that then display in the dashboard view? I am hoping that is the case, and, if so, as a teacher you can follow this guide How do I add an image to a course card in the Dashboard? to add an image to each course. I would note this does also require your institution to permit this at the account level, hence if you do not see such settings, may need to request this from your school's Canvas Administrators.
Hope that helps!
Apologies, missed one small point there, the colour overlay will still remain on top of the image. You can follow the notes in this release guide on how an individual can choose to remove the overlay https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-11052-canvas-production-release-notes-2017-05-13#jive_content_id_Color_Overlay
If you (like myself) would like to see there be an account or system-wide option to change this, I recommend having a look at New "Color Overlay" feature should have a way to change default setting and voting if you feel it meets your needs (or voting against, if you feel it doesn't).
?Thank you! Apparently, though, my institution doesn't think instructors are capable of this, so it isn't possible for me to customize my own course folders in Dashboard.
Thank you for the heads up, hopefully they may allow this in the future!
