Introducing the Course Dashboard Homepage
The Course Dashboard is a new version of the Schoology Homepage that enables users to view all their courses as a tiled list. Users can set this as their default home page, or as an alternate view on a second tab.
From here, members can click into any one of their courses and go directly to its main landing page.
Users can also access the Recent Activity view, the current home page for all Schoology accounts, from the tab next to the Course Dashboard tab.
Contact your Schoology Client Success Manager to enable the Course Dashboard homepage for your organization. Once enabled, the Course Dashboard is viewable for all users; currently you cannot selectively enable the dashboard only for specific roles or users.
Setting the Default Homepage
Although you can't selectively enable the Course Dashboard, users in your organization can set the default homepage for their own accounts: to the new Course Dashboard view, or to the Recent Activity view.
As Recent Activity is the current default homepage for Schoology members, this is a good option for users who don't want to change their regular landing page.
To Set the Default Homepage:
- Click the down arrow in the upper-right of the screen, next to your name, and select Account Settings.
- Scroll down to the Other Options section at the bottom of the page.
- In the Set Home Page to row, select Recent Activity or Course Dashboard.
- Click Save Changes to update the homepage.
