The Dashboard is the first thing you will see when you log into Canvas. The Dashboard helps you see what is happening in all your current courses.

You can return to your User Dashboard at any time by clicking the Dashboard link in Global Navigation.

The Dashboard is your landing page in Canvas. Your Dashboard defaults to displaying course cards for quick access to all your current courses.

The Dashboard may also include global announcements, which are announcements created by your school. 

Select the card for each of your classes to navigate to that class. 

Use the To-Do list on the right to keep track of your assignments and the due date.
