Improve Desktop Appearance

January 24, 2019

There are several things you can do to improve the appearance of your Canvas Dashboard. First, get rid of course tiles you don’t want to see by clicking Courses > scrolling down and clicking All Courses > then clicking the colored star icon in front of unwanted tile. The star should turn clear or black. A colored star indicates a ‘favorite’ that appears on the dashboard. Second, drag tiles to change their order on the Dashboard. Third, add an image to your course tile by creating and saving one PowerPoint slide as an image file, then go to your Course Menu > Settings > Course Details tab > click the ‘Choose Image’ link (all participants will see this image).
