New Dashboard Navigation User Interface

Canvas has developed a new user navigation interface for the initial, dashboard page that users see when they login to Canvas.   It is designed to have the same look and feel whether you use a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone

Starting May 23, 2016, when you log into Canvas, you’ll notice that the dashboard navigation menu/buttons have moved from the top to the left side of the window.

Course cards allow you to add nicknames to your courses and assign card colors.

Note: The Course navigation menu and course content remains the same.

CSU turned on the new Canvas Dashboard Navigation User Interface on Monday, May 23, 2016.
