how can i access the dashboard for the course?
It's nice to virtually meet you, and welcome to the Canvas Community!
The Dashboard is, quite literally, the first thing you encounter after a successful login to your Canvas Account.
Please see the links below, from the Canvas Support Guide:
How do I use the Dashboard as a student?
How do I use the Dashboard as an instructor?
I hope this helps! Welcome again, and we look forward to reconnecting with you!
Have a SUPER Day!
Right? Pinch, Poke: you owe me a Coke! LOL!
Have a GREAT Evening!
Hello Erika Gapinski Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. The Canvas Dashboard is the first screen that instructors and students see when they sign in to the Canvas LMS (Learning Management System). You can learn more about the Dashboard by going to these links:
I hope this helps, Erika. If you have any additional questions about the Dashboard, please let us know so that someone from the Community can help you out.
I do not see a dashboard when I am logged into canvas.
I do not see my course.
Hello again, Erika Gapinski...
Ah! That's a different question altogether. Thanks for the clarification. So, there are a couple things to check...
On your Canvas Dashboard, do you see your course listed at all as a course card (similar to the illustrations show in this Guide with the pictures of Lincoln, the forest, and the solar system: How do I use the Dashboard as a student?) If not, try going to your "Courses" >> "All Courses" menu in Canvas. Scroll through the listing of courses. Do you see the course listed there? If so, you may be able to click on the star next to the course name to mark it as a "favorite" so that it appears as a course card on the Dashboard. Further, if you do see the course listed on "All Courses" but you cannot click on the link, the course may be in an "unpublished" state. There should be a column to the right of the course name indicating if the course is published or not.
If you don't see the course listed at all on your "All Courses" screen, then you will need to contact someone at your school such as a local Canvas administrator or someone in your school's Registration department. The vast majority of people here in the Canvas Community don't have access to your course or your school's Canvas environment in order to help get you enrolled. This needs to be handled at your school. I found a couple resources for you that may be of help (hopefully I'm directing you to the right school and website): Getting to Know Canvas.
I hope this information will be of help to you, Erika. Good luck!
