How do I customize my Courses drop-down menu?

You can customize the courses you want to show in your Courses drop-down menu.

Note: Courses are always listed alphabetically; you cannot reorder your courses manually.

Select Courses from the Global Navigation

Select Courses from the Global Navigation

In the Courses drop-down menu, click the View All or Customize link.

Choose Courses

Click the stars next to a course to add or remove the course from the Courses drop-down menu. Courses with yellow stars indicate a favorite course and are included in the Courses and Groups drop-down menu. Current courses are starred by default. You can toggle the stars to favorite or unfavorite a course.

Your favorite courses will appear in your Courses and Groups drop-down menu after you make your selection(s).

Note: You can see all your present, past, and future courses by clicking the View All or Customize link [3]. You will only see future courses if the start date is in the future, the course is published, and you have been enrolled in the course.

Unpublished Courses

Only instructors can favorite unpublished courses [1]. Students can hover over a star icon for an unpublished or concluded course and view a message indicating that the course cannot be added as a favorite [2].
