Why wont it let me click on the name of the course so that it will take me to the home page of that course ?
Hello alexis and welcome to the Canvas Community! Are you trying to click on the name of the course from the Canvas Dashboard, the Course tab and clicking on "all courses" or somewhere else? There can be a number of reasons why this could occur. First, I would suggest that if you have not already done so, that you try to access the course from a couple of different web browsers. Chrome and Firefox have always worked best for me. Sometime an issue exists with one browser for some reason and not another.
Other than web browsers, if you are in the Courses tab and can see the course name but cannot click on the link, it may be that the course has not been published by the instructor. If this is the case, it should not appear on your dashboard at all. If this is the case, then your best option would be contacting the course instructor to determine when the class will be made available to students.
Might either of these explain what you are experiencing?
