Learn the steps needed to customize your dashboard to make it look and feel exactly how you want.


By now you will have noticed eClass has a new look! This has changed the dashboard and added some new features like the timeline and calendar.

However, you can still customize the dashboard to suit your preferences. This guide will walk you through the simple steps to do this!

The default Dashboard

The default dashboard view showcases a timeline section, list of recently accessed courses, and a calendar of eClass events and due dates.

The first section you'll see is a timeline of the activities you need to complete across all your courses so you can stay on track. You can sort this list by dates and activity status, if it is due, overdue, etc. If you don't see this block it means you've modified your dashboard, we'll show you later in this article how to add the timeline to your dashboard.

Then in the pop up menu, choose the block your prefer. In this example we will use the Starred courses block. This block will show your starred courses more easily for you to access, you can star your courses by visiting the My courses page on eClass. 

Once on the Add a block list you may need to scroll down as the list is in alphabetical order.

The block will now appear on your Dashboard. You can move a block by clicking and dragging the blue cross arrows on the top right corner of the block.

You can add, remove, or move any block on your dashboard to adjust it to your needs!
