Can I get around without going through the main page?
There are several ways to navigate in Canvas without returning to the main page (also known as the "Dashboard").
You can use the global navigation area, found at the top of the screen in the purple bar.
To move to another section in Canvas using global navigation follow these steps:
- Mouse over Courses / Courses & Groups. This opens the menu where all of your active courses and groups are listed.
- Click the course or group you want to reach. The home page for the course or group appears.
Global navigation will also take you to assignments, grades, and the calendar for all your courses, as well as your personal settings and the Canvas Inbox.
To move from section to section within a Canvas course, click any of the menu items in the course navigation. Or, click a link in the breadcrumb navigation.
To return to the home page, click the house icon. Click any breadcrumb link to go to that area of the course.
