Using the Dashboard

Whilst the Navigation block will always contain available courses that you are associated with, the Dashboard, (located at the top of the My Classes menu), can be used to help you find what you need faster. Usually you will only require access to current courses. You can also choose which blocks are available on this page.

Example of Dashboard.

To change the view

  1. You can choose to search by either Past, In Progress or Future courses you are enrolled in by using the Courses tab.

  2. You can use the Timeline tab to view recent events in your course such as due assignments. Click Sort by dates to see the most recent due activities or Sort by courses to view based on the courses.
