What is the Dashboard?


The Dashboard is the first thing you will see when you log into your Astria LMS. The dashboard helps you to have an overview of what is happening in all your active courses.

Open Dashboard




You can always access it by clicking on the Dashboard link in the Global Navigation panel.

View your Dashboard

Your Dashboard can be displayed in two views: Card View or Recent Activity View.

Card View: displays course cards for quick access to all your favorite courses (the same courses display in the Courses link from the Global Navigation Menu).

Recent Activity View: displays all recent activity for all courses.

The Dashboard contains a sidebar with a Coming up [1] section, which displays all the assignments you have for the coming week. From there you can also have access to your calendar by clicking on the View Calendar [2] link. 

The sidebar displays any Recent Feedback [3] you have received on your assignments.

You can also create a course by clicking on Start a New Course [4] button and view overall course grades through the View Grades [5] button. This button is available to all user roles and displays grades for both courses being taken and courses being taught.


Note: The Dashboard may also include Global announcements created by your institution.
