Updating your course design

From the Design tab of the course builder, you can choose the design of your course landing page and the course player.

Below we'll cover each section of this page in a little more detail...

Course landing page layout

This is where you can choose the overall layout of your course landing page.

By default, you are able to choose between the following layouts:

Default Course Landing Page - A more sales-focused layout, great for creating a long-form sales page for your course.

Curriculum Course Landing Page - A more content-focused layout, great for drawing attention to your awesome curriculum.

Video Course Landing Page - A demo video-focused layout, which makes your demo video pop!

And if you're code-savvy, why not use our Themes feature to create your own, completely customized landing page? Find out more

Course banner

This is the image that will appear across the top of your course landing page.

The recommended dimensions for banner images are listed here.

For best results, use an abstract image without text as, due to the responsive design of Thinkific's site pages, on some screen sizes parts of the image may be cut off.

**Banner overlay opacity - by default, your banner image will have a coloured overlay (based on the Brand Colour chosen on the Branding  page of your admin dashboard). You are able to change the overlay opacity percentage to make it more or less opaque. Some percentage of overlay is recommended in order to keep the course title, etc. (which will be laid over the top of the banner) as visible as possible.

Course card image

This is the image that will be shown on your course card which, when the course is published, appears on your site landing page, all courses page, and student dashboard.

You can change your course card from under Settings > Course Card in the Thinkific course builder.

The recommended dimensions for course card images are 500 x 280 pixels.

Course player theme

This is where you can choose a black or white theme for the course player; i.e. the actual course environment.


As you're choosing these elements, don't forget you're able to preview your course and landing page to see how it's all coming together! Here's how
