Any activities that require your attention – this is located under the ‘Timeline’ tab. Note that you can quickly get to the activity by clicking 'Add submission'

Note here that you can choose to see your Timeline by ‘ Sort by dates ’ or by ‘ Sort by courses ’.
If you select ‘ Sort by dates ’ you will see the activities that require your attention by dates as the tab suggests.

If you select ‘ Sort by courses ’ you will see your courses listed on the left and the activities that require your attention listed to the right of the course.

Here we see the courses that you are enrolled in – this is located under the ‘Courses’ tab. Teachers may see hidden courses also but not students. Students can be enrolled in a hidden course but they wont see it because its hidden.

Good to know!

Notice that you can see new submissions there are to mark (indicated within the grey box).
Hidden courses are shown to teachers. We can tell they are hidden because their title is greyed out.
If past courses are not hidden, students can still access them. This could be good for review purposes. To stop students from submitting work work in a course that has ended but is open, deadlines should be set on the individual activities and drop boxes (assignments).
