Canvas LMS Tutorial — Adding Images to Course Cards

Note that in order to add course cards, your system admin needs to enable that feature in your production instance. If you get that far in the tutorial (00:18) and don’t see “Enable Dashboard Images for Courses” as an option, contact your system admin and ask her/him to enable that feature.
