Branding options allow customization of the Student experience for all or different parts of the user population through the Welcome Page and Branding Organizations.
In ACCOUNT > Branding, Unrestricted Admins will see a list of current Branding Organizations within the account.
On the Branding Organization page, Admins can select either an existing organization and click the Edit button or use the New Organization button to create a new branding organization.
To edit or create the Welcome Page for an existing organization, select and Edit an organization and click on the Welcome Page tab at the top of the page.
The Rich Editor allows you to insert images and videos to customize the look and feel of the Welcome page.
Note: When inserting images and videos, an image or video URL and not an image file saved on your computer must be added. To obtain an image URL, go to the image on a website and right-click on the image.
- In Google Chrome select "Copy image address"
- In Mozilla Firefox select "Copy Image Location"
- In Safari or Opera select “Copy Image Address”
- In Internet Explorer select “properties” and this will open a window where you will copy and paste the "Address URL"
Use the Edit HTML tab to paste in HTML or the Rich Editor tab to design a unique learner experience. Check the Active box and save to make the Welcome Page live. Check the Do Not Hide box so the Welcome Page should always be displayed to Students each time they login, or uncheck the box so Students can dismiss the Welcome Page after initial view.

The Properties page contains several options for customizing the currently selected Branding Organization.
