Changing Your My Home Course Icon

If your instance of D2L is using the “My Visual Course List” option you may want to follow these directions. This tutorial is going to allow you to change the icon from the default picture that shows up on everyone’s home screen. This default is set by the system administrator and may not reflect the content of your course or class.

It’s pretty easy to change – just follow these directions or the PDF attached.
