Learn.UQ Basics Online Workshop

12. Images

Images can be used as stimulus for weekly topics, as well as a learning resource. Blackboard will not change the image height in proportion with the width automatically. You will need to divide the width and height by the same number (i.e. divide by 2) so the images are in proportion and not skewed.

For more information, refer to the Insert a Content Menu Image guide.
