  How To Display Banners and/or Include Sponsor Messages in Your Website

This document refers to one or more of the options accessible by clicking your "Configure" menu item in your top menu when you are logged on as administrator, then clicking the "Banners / Sponsor Messages" header item to expand the options.


Create Your Banner and Sponsor Message

The banner is an image that can either be inserted at the top or bottom of any public tool. So depending how "in your face" you want the banner to be, create the size accordingly. As a matter of preference, the standard 728px x 90px banner is a reasonable size that gets noticed and generally does not annoy users.

See? You're not annoyed, are you? If you upload banners larger than 910px wide, they will be reduced to 910px wide, so they fit within the tool.

A sponsor message is some plain text that is appended (added to the end) of each e-mail the system sends users (not admin - unless admin are getting copied on a user message). The sponsor message should contain a clear call to action, to be effective:

Plan Your Banner Delivery

Remember that your banners can run on any public tool, but that does not mean they have to run on all public tools. You also don't need to the same banner to run on all the tool—each tool can run a different banner. The banners can run on the top of the pages (maximum visability) or the bottom (more subtle visability). And for some tools, they can be displayed to the public only, the public and registered users, or in the case of the online course, non registered students and/or self-evaluated students. So plan the following:

  1. How many different banners do you want to run?
  2. On what tools will you run which banners?
  3. Will you run the banners on the top of the pages or the bottom?
  4. Which audience do you want to see the banners (not available for all tools)
