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, Kaltura, Ooyala, 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 below the video by expanding "Content"
