Canvas Shorts: Where are my courses if they are not on the Dashboard? Script
Where are my courses if they are not on the Dashboard? If you believe you are missing courses on your Dashboard in Canvas, check All Courses. Click "Courses" in Global Navigation. Then click "All Courses" from the Courses tray. The All Courses page will list all of the courses you are enrolled in on Canvas. If your Courses list is missing a course, you may not be enrolled in it, course participation may be restricted, or your institution may not have updated the course enrollments in Canvas. Once registered, courses may take up to 24 hours to show in Canvas. You may need to reach out to your Canvas administrator or your instructor for help. Courses that state "No" in the Published column are unpublished and not accessible to students. Favorited courses have a colored star in front of their name. Favorited courses are the courses that display on the Dashboard. Click the star in front of a course to favorite it. Only active and published courses can be favorited. Click "Dashboard" in Global Navigation. Favorited courses, the ones with the colored star, will appear on the Dashboard. Favorite Courses will also be listed in the Courses tray.
