Canvas Quick Tip: Course Card Customization

In canvas, course cards on your dashboard represent courses you’re enrolled in either as a faculty member or student. You can change the nickname and color of each card by clicking the gear icon on the card. Once finished customizing your course cards, click Apply.

The sidebar also supports course nicknames. Once you create a nickname for a course, it appears with all associated assignments or events. Once you click Apply to save your nickname, refresh the page for the change to take effect.

In addition, a new item indicator appears for new announcements, discussions, assignments, files, and graded items.

As always, please contact LDT with questions about Canvas.
