How do I use my Homeroom Dashboard as a student?

If your school is using the Canvas for Elementary feature, the Homeroom Dashboard is the first thing you will see when you log into Canvas. The Dashboard helps you see what is happening in all your current courses.

You can return to your Homeroom Dashboard at any time by clicking the Dashboard link in Global Navigation.
