  3. From your All Courses list you can select and deselect courses as "favorites" to customize which courses appear on your Dashboard. Favorite courses are shown with a filled-in star icon and will appear on the Dashboard.
    • If you do not yet have any courses marked as a favorite, you can hide unwanted courses by selecting the star icon next to all of the courses you do currently want to see on your Dashboard. Any course not marked as a favorite will be removed from the Dashboard.
    • If you already have some courses marked as favorites, click the star icon next to a favorite course to "unfavorite" it and remove it from your Dashboard.
    • NOTE: You must have at least one course marked as a favorite for your non-favorite courses to be removed from your dashboard.

  5. To access a non-favorite course, find it in your All Courses list, which you can access by selecting Courses > All Courses in the Global Navigation Menu.
