New Canvas User Interface
Coming May 16, 2016
What is the New Canvas User Interface?
The new Canvas User Interface (UI) is an updated interface structure enhanced by a responsive user experience for the User Dashboard and Global Navigation menu. The Course Navigation menu also collapses on smaller screens, allowing for a more content-focused and responsive layout.

How do I use the new UI?
The first thing you will see when you log into Canvas is your User Dashboard. The User Dashboard helps you see what is happening in all your courses and allows you to figure out what to do next. To help manage Canvas activity, the User Dashboard also supports the Recent Activity Stream, which can be toggled at the top of the User Dashboard based on user preference. The recent activity stream shows activity for all your Canvas courses. To view Recent Activity, click the User Dashboard icon. The icon will switch from the left side to the right, indicating the current Dashboard view.
You can return to your User Dashboard at any time by clicking the Dashboard link in Global Navigation.
