Understanding My Home and Course Home
My Home is your starting point inside Learning Environment. It is also your organization's homepage where you can access widgets, tool links on the navbar, organization-level content, and other available resources.
Course Home is the first page you see when you navigate to a course. Similar to My Home, it also contains widgets, tool links on the navbar, and resources that enable you to access your personal information, account settings, and course specific content.
The minibar is your main navigation tool to courses and personal settings in Learning Environment. The minibar contains a link to My Home, the course selector, alerts, and your personal menu.
Your courses are listed in the course selector, and you can sort them by course name or by date last accessed. You can also select specific courses from the course selector and pin them to the top of the list for easier navigation.
Access the course you want from the course selector. Click Load More Courses to expand the course list, or use the Search field to find your course.
