I have finished my syllabus. Still not sure shy I can't change my home page and put a picture

@schulmaj it looks like you may be going through the steps of a training course.  You may want to reach out to the training facilitator for further direction.  You've reached the public Canvas Community.

Im finding the course interesting, but the part about designing the main course page a bit confusing
