How do I customize my Canvas Course List?

In Canvas, open Courses. Click the Courses link [1], then click the View All or Customize link [2].

Manage Courses
Click the star next to a course to add or remove the course from the Courses list. Courses with yellow stars indicate a favorite course and are included in the Courses and Groups drop-down menu. You can toggle the stars to favorite or unfavorite a course. You can only favorite current courses.

View Unpublished Courses

If a course is unpublished, students cannot favorite the course [1]. Students can hover over a star icon for an unpublished or concluded course and view a message indicating that the course cannot be added as a favorite [2]. However, instructors can favorite unpublished courses.

View Past Enrollments
Depending on course configuration, some favorited courses may still display the favorite icon even after the course has ended. If a past enrollment course shows the favorite icon, users can unfavorite the course by toggling the star icon.
