Is the Dashboard on Canvas editable

Jump to solution

1.       Is the Dashboard on Canvas editable for individual schools’ instances?

2.       If not, can individual course tiles be edited to show a graphic?

 @mcnair ,

I doubt that the dashboard area, itself, is something you can edit easily for your instance. You can put an image on course tiles. It's a setting for each course. I created a blueprint course that pushes an image in the tile, but that can be changed by the faculty member. The tile color chosen by the student overlays the image, so the colors of the image may be muted or appear altered.

Here's the FAQ: How do I add an image to a course card in the Dashboard?

Aaron,

thanks for the info, I thought as much but I am hoping someone has found a solution.  We may go with editing the tiles via blue print.

thanks!
