How do I use the Activities tool and Course Home pages?

Visiting Course Home pages often is the easiest way to see how well a student is staying on top of classes

Each course has its own Course Home as part of the Activities tool; you can access it in one of the following ways:

  • Select the course’s Course Card from the Home page.
  • Select Activities from the Main Menu when you’re in the desired course; if you’re not already in a course, you will have to select the course you want.

On a Course Home page you can:

  1. Review course announcements in the top left of the screen.
  2. Review a student's upcoming and past-due activities in the To-do List below Announcements. By default, the To-do List displays assignments with due dates coming up within seven days.
  3. Review Course Links in the toolbar to review resources that the teacher has marked as significant for the entire course.
  4. Check a student's current course score.
  1. Review all course activities from the course sidebar navigation below the To-do List.
  2. Review content that is only visible to the teacher and you. A map icon appears next to these activities, and they generally contain Lesson Guides or other resources intended for you to help the student succeed.
  3. Review a student's daily agendas posted by the teacher.
  4. Review and open a student's Last Visited activity as well as the activity that is Up Next.
  5. Review the course summary or course messages from the teacher.
  1. Review a student's course actions, starting from the most recent, using the Activity Stream; click the posts to open the activity, badge, or announcement listed. If the teacher has provided feedback, you can open it from here as well.


  • Notice that as you open activities from anywhere from a Course Home, the Course Home button remains in the toolbar as an easy way back.
  • Once you’ve selected an activity on the Course Home, you can use the forward and back arrows in the toolbar to browse course activities.
