The Canvas Dashboard is set to show the List View by default when users log in. For students, it provides a helpful to-do list sorted by due date. This helps them stay on top of upcoming assignments or course activity.
Sample Student Dashboard
Students can access individual courses using the Course menu on the left side of the screen (book icon).
Change the Dashboard View
If you (or your students) would prefer the course Card View, you can change back using the three-dot menu in the top right corner. Select the Dashboard layout you would prefer to update your preferences.
