To organize your Dashboard, you can favorite courses you want to appear in Dashboard.
Other courses that are not marked as favorite can be still be accessed through Courses in the Global Navigation menu. Course Cards can help you organize your courses by adding a nickname or customizing the color, which is synced with the color shown for the course in the Calendar. The Card View Dashboard also includes the Dashboard sidebar, which includes items in your To-Do list and includes a link to the global Grades page.

Tips and Tricks
- When you favorite at least one course, the Dashboard will only display favorited courses.
- Canvas automatically favorites new course enrollments, so when Canvas courses for a new term are created, they will automatically appear in your Dashboard. You can remove any unneeded courses from your dashboard by unfavoriting them.
- Add an image to a course card in the dashboard to help your course stand out to students.
