What is the Course Activity Stream?

The Course Activity Stream shows you all of the recent activity from a single course. This is different from the Global Stream, which you see in the User Dashboard when you first log in to Canvas. As an instructor, you have the option to show the Course Activity Stream as your Course Home Page.
