How to Make a Book Cover Appear in an OER Course
When creating or viewing an OER course in the Lumen platform, you may encounter broken images. When trying to load an image for a book cover, it appears in Table of Contents, but it shows up as a broken image. To fix a broken image in your OER course, you can fix it on your own.

First, log in so you can see the Admin Dashboard. Navigate to the Media option from the menu on the left. Next, search for “cover” or select the cover image if obvious–click on it to see more details.
- On the Attachment Details, on the right-hand side, at the bottom, look for “Copy to Server from S3.” Click the link and wait for the green confirmation banner at the top of the screen.
- Return to the course’s main page and reload. If the photo still does not appear, double check that you’ve selected the correct version of the cover image, especially if you have uploaded multiple times.
