Students has the number of course sites for the current semester that you’re enrolled in as an student or guest student role and will display a list of those sites.
My Home links to your homepage within ICON.
List of all active course sites that exist for courses you’re enrolled in for the selected semester. Course sites that are in the “ongoing” session will also appear here. For each course, you will see a link to the main ICON site, and if there is an associated Wiki site, it will be linked as well.
You can view your ongoing courses on the Dashboard from any semester you currently have selected. Click on the bar underneath “My Courses” that says “Ongoing Courses” to display them. You can view four courses at a time and navigate page by page.
Any course sites that your instructor(s) have not yet activated or have chosen not to use will appear here. Whether or not a course site is active and accessible to students is entirely up to each instructor.
