Starting June 1, 2016, canvas.brown.edu will look different
The Canvas home page will have a better responsive design suited for smaller screens and smartphones. There will be very few functionality changes, however, the landing page and global navigation will look different. In the “New UI (user interface)”, look for the following changes:
- Dashboard: canvas.brown.edu will display a grid of Course Cards . Click on a Course Card to access a class site, or click on course activity icons to view recent course-specific Announcements, Grades, Discussions, or Files .
- Canvas Navigation: Look to the left navigation menu for links to all Course sites , Canvas Account  information , and other global Canvas tools, like the Calendar and Inbox tool. Looking for Grades? It’s now on the right side of the Dashboard page.
- Courses: Choose Course Cards by clicking on the Courses  icon, then “All Courses”. Click on the Star icon for a course to display as a course card on the Canvas dashboard.
- Help: Report a problem, call, or chat with Canvas support using the Help  icon in the left navigation.
