I just logged in to Canvas for the first time. I have a tile for each subject I teach, but not each section. How do I add more sections to the dashboard?
I would suggest contacting your school's Canvas Admin (or Canvas Support) team. If you have classes listed in your dashboard, that was automatically done, likely via integration to your school's SIS. Whether you can create new course, or should create courses, or if they'll be done in the future automatically, is all decided by your school and how they have set it up, so it's best to talk to them about how they want you to move forward, instead of getting generic suggestions here that may or may not apply.
Hi Paul Hessler
The Course Tiles on the Dashboard page display your current Canvas courses, and reflect those courses displayed in your Courses list. If you have more than one section cross-listed to a single Canvas course, you cannot create a Course Card for that section.
You can give the courses displayed on your dashboard a nickname, and you could use that functionality to list the section IDs included in that course. You can learn more at How do I view course cards in the Dashboard as an instructor?
I hope this helps,
