Do you have an image or photograph on your computer you'd like students to use in a lesson as an activity? You've come to the right place!

Image Activity

  • Step 1: After you've created the lesson, add an Activity and select Add Resource.

  • Step 2: Select the Image button, then click Browse or Take a Photo

  • Step 3: Select Browse to choose an image that you've already taken, or select Take a Photo to use your computer's webcam to take a live image.

  • Step 4: Add a name to the image.

  • Step 5: Click Save.

  • Step 6: Add a title and instructions.

  • Step 7: Add an image (optional). For best results, use an image with a ratio equivalent to 300 width x 200 height. *If this ratio is not used, the image will be seen in full by the student but a blurred background of the uploaded image will be added to fill the blank space. See below.
