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.
