Setting a Video Thumbnail

Follow

If you have uploaded a video to Skilljar, you can either use your course promo image, or you can choose from a frame to make your thumbnail image.

Note: this applies to videos you've uploaded to Skilljar only. If you embed a video from YouTube, Vimeo, or another platform, the thumbnail can only be edited on your hosting platform.

Using the course promo image

  1. Navigate to the lesson with a video via Course Management.
  2. Click Edit Video Thumbnail
  3. On the screen that pops-up, choose "Select course promo image"

 

Select a frame as the thumbnail

  1. Navigate to the lesson with a video via Course Management.
  2. Click Edit Video Thumbnail
  3. Press the play button, then pause it when you've found the frame you wish to use for the thumbnail. Click "Select current frame"
  4. A confirmation will display on the lesson page. Note: it can take 2-5 minutes to display the updated thumbnail
