How do I organize my Canvas Dashboard?

When you are enrolled in more than one Canvas course, you can customize the active courses you want to show in your Canvas Dashboard by marking favorites in your Courses / All Courses list.

When no courses are set as favorites (the default), up to 20 courses are displayed alphabetically in the Dashboard.

Go to Courses, then select All Courses

Canvas courses icon selected and Courses flyout menu displayed

This displays the All Courses list which includes all of the courses in which you are enrolled.

Click on the Star icon for each course you want to display on your Dashboard

All Courses list with filled-in star icons next to selected courses

Clicking on the Star will turn the star icon red indicating that this is a "favorite" and you want it listed on your Canvas Dashboard.

Click the Dashboard icon to return to the Dashboard

Any course you designated as a favorite will appear on the dashboard. Unpublished courses will appear at the bottom under the header "Unpublished Courses."
