The Course Dashboard Home Page

The Course Dashboard is a new version of the Schoology Home page that enables users to view all their courses as a tiled list. From the Course Dashboard, click into any one of your courses and go directly to its main landing page. Drag and drop the tiles to rearrange the order of your courses on the dashboard. This also rearranges the order in the Courses drop-down menu.

Note: The Course Dashboard view is not currently available on the Schoology Android mobile app. To learn more about Course Dashboard on the iOS app, see this article.

Users can also access the Recent Activity view, which remains the default home page for all Schoology accounts. Users can set the default view, but can still toggle between both views at the top of the page.
