On my CANVAS Dashboard I see the courses I have created. I put in pictures for each course, but cannot get rid of a colored background, which takes away from my pictures. White or no color is not a choice. How can I remove the color?
Hi Ramona HedrickIf you click the three white dots in the top corner of the course card, you get the menu to select the colour. At the bottom is a field where you can enter the hex code of any colour. Well, almost any colour - it won't let you enter #FFFFFF which is the code for pure white, but you could enter #FFFFFE which is pretty close to white. However this does have the disadvantage of also changing the colour of the course title, making it almost invisible. So you might want to experiment with very pale colours that don't detract from the image but also leave the course title text visible.
Hello, Ramona Hedrick and Welcome to the Canvas Community! In addition to the helpful advice you've received from Steve Watts, I'll add that the ability to remove the course card color altogether is an option available to each user. Please review How do I use the Dashboard as a student? (I linked to the lesson for students in case you want to provide this to them, but the instructions are the same for instructors) with specific reference to the Change Dashboard View section. Clicking on the three vertical dots (kebab menu) reveals an option to uncheck and thereby remove the color overlay.
