Navigating Canvas can be done quickly and easily by using the Global Navigation Menu on the left side of every page. This has links to your Account, Dashboard, Courses, Groups, Calendar, Inbox, and more. It also has a Help button to contact Instructure Support.
After logging in to Canvas, you will see the Dashboard, which has three different view modes which can be changed using the three dots in the right-hand corner of the Dashboard:
- Card View shows your ongoing and favorited courses.
- List View provides a to-do list of upcoming items from your courses. It also allows you to add your own to-do list items.
- Recent Activity View organizes recent events from your courses into categories based on the type of event.
For more information on navigating Canvas, you can look at the Instructure Help Pages.
