Canvas Tips and Tricks:

Does your dashboard have courses in it that you don’t want to see?  You can hide courses so you only see the courses you want to see. 

Click on courses in left side menu bar.  Then click all courses (toward the bottom of your list of courses).  Then you star the ones that you want to see in your dashboard.  Unstar the ones that you want to hide.
