There’s no page like Home

Signing in lands you on the Home page where all your current courses are listed. From here you can:

  1. Use the Main Menu to access your Buzz tools: Home, Activities (Course Home pages), Performance, Communication, Calendar, and Help. If configured for it, your Main Menu tool icons remain active on the left side of the screen to facilitate easy navigation; click the menu to expand it.
  1. Use the Course Chooser to access a course's Course Home in the Activities tool.
  1. Open the User Menu to:
    • Customize your settings and themes.
    • Change your password.
    • Join a course using a registration code provided by the course instructor.
    • End any active Google Drive sessions.
    • Learn more about Buzz.
    • Logout of Buzz.
  1. Review Announcements for important class information.
  2. Use the To-do List to see and open upcoming and past-due assignments. By default, the To-do List displays assignments with due dates coming up within seven days.
  3. Click Course-Card Settings in the toolbar to manage the cards' order on the Home page.
  4. Quickly check your current course scores and progress on gradable activities displayed on the Course Cards; select a Course Card to access its Course Home. Course Cards will also notify you when a course enrollment has expired.
  5. Review your recent activity, starting from the most recent, using the Activity Stream; click the posts to open the activity, badge, or announcement listed.

Your Home page gives you immediate access to the tools you need and to task reminders to help you stay on top of everything.
