How do I view all my Canvas courses as an instructor?

After logging into Canvas, you can view your current courses. If you are unable to see courses in your Dashboard, they may be accessed under Courses. This article will explain how you can access them, and how to ensure they display on your Dashboard.

Open Courses

In Global Navigation, click the Courses link [1], then click the All Courses link [2].

View Courses

Courses are organized into All Courses [1], Past Enrollments [2], Future Enrollments [3], and Groups [4].

Courses and groups are sorted alphabetically by course or group name.

View All Courses

All Courses are courses that are part of the current semester or term. However, depending on access settings for a course, My Courses can also display courses that have not yet started or are unpublished.

Courses that are available to you are listed in blue text [1]. These courses have been published and include a link to the course. To open a course, click the name of the course. Courses that are within the current term dates but are not yet available are listed in black text [2]. These courses have not been published.

You can also view any nicknames you have created for courses [3].

If a course includes a term date [4], the term date displays next to the course name.

Each course includes your enrollment status [5]. Statuses can be student, teacher, TA, observer, designer, or a custom role as created by your institution.

The published status for each course displays in the Published column [6]. Unpublished courses display a gray background [7]. The gray background does not display for unpublished courses in past or future enrollments.
