The My Home Page

customize my home pageMy Home is a customizable CLE page that provides users with links to their courses and activities within them, such as unread forum posts and upcoming assignments. Students were previously unable to customize the My Home page, which caused confusion when current courses did not display at the top of the Course Overview list.

The My Home page is now customizable and CLE users can reorder their list of CLE courses, as well as configure how many courses to display in a number of ways on the My Home page.
