Canvas for Elementary Homeroom Dashboard


Canvas for Elementary is currently an opt-in feature and may not be available for your institution. For more information, please see Canvas Release: Canvas for Elementary.

Students with an active enrollment in a Canvas for Elementary course can view the Canvas for Elementary Homeroom tab. This change provides some consistency between the web and mobile app versions of Canvas. Additional Canvas for Elementary Dashboard tabs will be added in future releases.

The Dashboard includes the Homeroom tab, which displays the latest announcement for the Homeroom course. Students can also view and open all subjects where they are enrolled.

By default, the Canvas for Elementary Dashboard is enabled for the app. However, students can turn off the Dashboard and view the Course Card Dashboard in the Settings menu. Turning off the Dashboard requires the app to be closed and opened again for the Dashboard change to apply.
