Why doesn't the module sign me back in from where I left off. I spend way to much time searching through the list
Welcome to the Canvas Community!!!
This functionality does not currently exist in Canvas. There was a request for this feature Continue where you left off a year ago, but it did not get the support from the Community needed to move it forward.
One that is similar is this Provide students with option to pin or bookmark a page in a module
I would recommend that you add your vote for this functionality.
Although I am a teacher, I think students would benefit greatly from the ability to mark a task within a module complete. Students complain they have trouble figuring out where they left off in a module and if they've completed a module. I recently enrolled in some online teaching courses delivered via Canvas. I experienced exactly what the students were describing. I was spending way too much time trying to figure out where I left off in a module It would be very helpful if I, as the student could track (by a checkbox) what modules I had completed. I created a work-around by selecting all the text in each module, then copying and pasting this text to spreadsheet so that I can track each module/task have I completed. A simple checkbox beside each task in module would be most helpful. I think Moodle had something similar. I know an instructor can track module completion and then open up modules based on predecessor modules being completed, but I like to open the entire course so students can visualize the entire course and requirements. It is frustrating as a student to not be able to see what's coming up next.
