Home page: 

After you log in you will see the home page. Your teacher/school can decide what page will be the first page you see. Ideally, it should be the course cards homepage that displays recent updates from your courses, your tasks (or follow-up tasks), and upcoming events.

Main menu

The main menu bar provides multiple options for navigation.  

Home will take you back to the home page. 

Courses provides a dropdown list of your favorite courses. Click ‘all courses’ to view those that are not your favorites or those that were archived. 

You can favorite a course by clicking the star icon next to the course and turning it yellow. 

You can see when courses were last updated, visited, the status and your role in the course (student). The ‘show’ option will reveal active or archived courses. You can also enroll in community courses here. screenshot course list

Groups gives you access to your communities and organizational dashboards. Communities (US English, shows as Projects if your school is using UK English) are like courses, but are collaborative spaces in which you are a member. Dashboards can be enabled for schools/school networks/districts to use as informational spaces.
