Q. How can I add a banner to my NILE site?


A banner is an image that can be inserted onto the entry-point page of your NILE site:

  1. Go to your NILE module and follow this route:
  2. NILE / Control Panel / Customisation / Teaching Style / Select Banner

The banner will only appear on the Site Entry Point listed on the Teaching Style page so check your Entry Point and click Submit

The banner is typically a combination of words and images that give a flavour of what the site relates to.

  1. Open the attached PowerPoint file
  2. Right Click the slide to format the colour of the background
  3. Try and ensure the background colour and text contrast is accessible by following the link in the slide notes.
  4. Right Click to Duplicate the slides for each of your modules
  5. Amend the text on each slide to match your module code and title, exclude the year so the slide doesn’t date.
  6. Now, Save As PNG and tell PowerPoint to save each slide as an image

You now have a folder full of lots of PNG files which are your NILE Banners .
