LearningSpace: How to add a welcome message and image to your LS course page

How to add a welcome message and image to your LS module page

A basic (bare bones) LearningSpace page is created for each module using a ‘topic format’ layout.  Module leads and tutors then need to customise the page and add content.  A good starting point is to have a welcome message to give students information about the course and contact details

  • The first thing that you need to do is click the turn editing on.fw  button (located at the top right hand side of the page)
  • Click the ‘cog’ icon (above the News Forum) cog.fw
  • You are now ready to begin adding your welcome message. Click in the checkbox to deselect the ‘tick’ and type in a new name for your section

WELCOME.fw

  • Add your text – A welcome message, information about the course and what to expect and contact details are quite useful to include here

WELCOME TEXT2.fw

  • To add a picture of yourself or the team: click directly infront of the text you have entered, then click the insert/edit image icon, click find or upload an image -> choose file -> navigate to where your image is stored, click open and then click the upload this file button
      • You will see your uploaded image in the ‘Preview’ area and can type in an image description
      • Next you need to click the Appearance tab to make changes to the image size and alignment before adding it to your page

On the Appearance tab:

  • Change alignment to left (this change will wrap text around the image rather than being underneath it)
  • Change the image size – 200 is a reasonable size (make sure the constrain proportions box is checked)
  • Add horizontal space (e.g. 4) to add a little space between the text and image

  • When you have made these changes, click the insert button
