You may choose to "Favorite" certain courses in your Courses list - this results in only the "Favorited" courses showing up in your Canvas Dashboard. Non-favorited courses will be hidden.
NOTE: Once you have favorited a course, NEW courses that you are enrolled in will NOT be automatically added to your favorites.
