A Course page includes an image that represents the course. The site administrator might have added a default image. You can change the default image to an image specific for the course. A thumbnail version of the image appears on pages used to navigate to the course.
Be sure to include your institution’s identity elements, including color and typeface, logos, seals, or emblems in course artwork. The use of these identity elements helps your users to immediately associate your course with your institution, establishes authenticity, and creates value for your content.
Note: Each track can have its own artwork. The artwork is displayed in the iTunes Now Playing window when the track is selected or on the iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV during playback. If the site administrator specifies a preference to overwrite the Artwork field, the course image replaces the artwork for the track.
Use an image that is 300 x 300 pixels square and in one of the following formats: JPEG, PNG, or GIF. The file must have the appropriate file extension: .jpg, .jpeg, .png, or .gif.
To add a course image:
Click a course title or thumbnail image in a Public Feature or Welcome page.
The specific Course page appears.
Click Edit Page in the Tools area.
Click the Upload icon in the upper-left corner of the course image.
iTunes U displays the Upload Artwork webpage in your default web browser so you can select the file to upload.
Click Choose File.
Browse for a new file and select it.
Click Return to iTunes.
iTunes U uses the image you select as the main image in the Course page. iTunes U also automatically creates a scaled down version of the image to display as a thumbnail in the pages used to navigate to the course.
Click End Editing.
