Pinning Your Courses

The ‘Pinned Courses’ widget gives YOU the power to choose the courses that appear on your homepage. Remember to update your pinned courses at the beginning of each semester by adding your new courses and removing any past courses. Unpinning a course does NOT remove the course from your account. You'll always be able to access your available courses by clicking "View all Courses."  

Accessing your Courses

Click the "View all Courses" link found at the bottom of the "Pinned Courses" widget to see all of your active courses.
