Move Courses on the Dashboard

Last updated on October 19, 2021

The Dashboard feature in Canvas enables you to view all of your courses in one place. Each course card provides quick links to various sections of the course and provides a visual aid to help you view and organize your courses. While cards are arranged alphabetically by default, you can rearrange the cards to fit your organizational method, making it even easier for you to find and access your courses.
