Customize Your Course List
Most instructors will eventually have a large number of courses on their Canvas Dashboard, including “official” courses generated by the college, as well as “sandbox” (development) courses they created manually.
Sometimes you might be looking for a course and can’t find it on the Dashboard. Where else to look?
It’s easy to have your most used courses readily available on the Dashboard and Courses list, while keeping others out of sight but still easy to get to when needed. The secret is the star.
