Easy navigation

After logging in, you have access to core features in the Base Navigation menu where your name appears. This menu remains as a side panel even when you are in a course.

When you select any link from Base Navigation, you see a global view across all your courses. For example, Grades shows all your grading tasks organized by course. No need to navigate to each course to see what's ready for grading.
