When you are enrolled in more than one Canvas course, you can customize the active courses you want to show in your Course list.
Courses you want to show in the Courses fly out menu and dashboard are called favorite courses. You can favorite any published course that appears after you click the All Courses link.
When no courses are favorited, the courses list and dashboard automatically display up to 12 courses.
Once you have selected at least one course as a favorite, only your favorite courses will appear in the Courses list.
Favorite courses in the Courses menu and the dashboard are ordered alphabetically by course role and course name, you cannot reorder your courses manually.
Courses with instructor roles are listed first, followed by TA roles and any other custom instructor-based roles. Courses with student roles are listed last.
For all users who have customized their Courses list, Canvas automatically adds all new enrollments as a favorite.
For students, courses are not set as a favorite until the course is published. (Students cannot favorite unpublished courses.)
For instructors, courses are set as a favorite as soon as they are added to the course.
You can create a nickname for your course cards to help you organize your Dashboard. Click on the edit icon in the upper right of each card.
