I am an Administrator. How can I get the courses I create to appear on my Dashboard?

I am having trouble with a course I just created. The course is in my Admin list, but is not showing up on my Dashboard list or dashboard page. Also, when I 'launch' the course via admin, I have no heading telling me which course I am in...Any thoughts?

  • It sounds like you haven't been enrolled in the course, Tina. In order for a course to be visible on your Dashboard, you will need to be enrolled in that particular course as an instructor or student. Can you please enroll yourself in the course you need access to and let us know if you are still having trouble?

    The 'Launch Course' button located in the Admin tools will not provide you with full access to the instructor tools available in a course and should not be used to manage content. It is intended to give an Administrator minimum access to the course in the case there was a need to retrieve content. We apologize for any confusion!

  • Thanks, OC. I knew I must be doing something differently but could not put my finger on the solution. This was a nuance I had not picked up on and I will remember in the future.

    Hi,

    I have about 4-5 administrators in my institution. This enables us to create courses simultaneously. However, based on our observation, the courses displayed in the dashboard are the only courses that an administrator created. (For example, I created the course TEST, while you created the course TEST2. I can see TEST in my dashboard but not TEST2, and vice versa.) Is this normal? I wish I could see all created courses in the dashboard, regardless if I created it or not since I am an admin.

    Also, just now, I created a course but can't seem to access it since it is not showing up in my dashboard. Please advise.

    Thank you.

  • The administrators on your campus should be able to see all of the courses that have been created when they click on the 'Courses' tab in the Admin tools. In order to see an existing course on your personal Dashboard, you need to be enrolled in that particular course. As an administrator, you can enroll yourself in any course that has been created on your campus regardless of who originally created the course.

    • Okay, great! Yesterday it wasn't working. But today it is. Just one comment, though. The dashboard is not refreshing that fast. I tried enrolling myself to a course just to check if it will appear in my dashboard (and it did!). But when I removed myself as an instructor, I can still see the course in my dashboard. Maybe when I check it later it wouldn't be there anymore. Hopefully! (:

      Anyway, thanks for the quick response. As always! Good job.
    • You're welcome! We're glad we're able to help.
