How do Instructors add their photos to Class Materials

Adding your photo to your class materials is very different than adding a photo to your profile. 

To start, open Class Materials.  

Expand the session you want to add the photo into.  Click on the session name Syllabus, Week One, ….

Each session usually contains what Orbund calls Announcements. It is the announcement that has the lesson materials. To open the announcement click on the name of the announcement. This typically is the text at the top of the expanded session. It will become underlined when you move the cursor over it. Click it to edit the announcement.

Images copied directly from a photo editor do not paste.  First, paste the image into a Word document. Size it. There is no way to resize it once in the announcement. Now copy the image (ctrl c) from the Word document. It will now paste into the text box of the edit announcement page. Paste (ctrl v) the image into the text where you want it.  (NOTE: paste icon does not insert images use ctrl V)
