Your Canvas Dashboard

When you log into Canvas you will be brought to your Dashboard. Your dashboard gives you an overview of your modules and any upcoming tasks or items that may need your attention. You can change the way your dashboard is displayed by clicking on the menu at the top right of the screen.


The Dashboard also includes a sidebar to the right, which shows upcoming events across your modules.

Icons may appear at the bottom of the Module card in your dashboard representing recent activity for Announcements, Assignments, Discussions and Files. 

You can click on these to jump to that section of the particular module. Otherwise just click the name of the module to open the module in Canvas.  


If you don’t see a particular module in your Dashboard you can click on the Modules link in your Canvas menu and select All modules. 

Click on the star next to a module to mark it as a favourite and add it to your Dashboard
