Ultra Navigation

From the moment you log in, you have access to core features in the list where your name appears, on the left sidebar. You can easily return to the list from wherever you are—even if you're in a course. The list peeks from behind the other layers you have open. The activity stream displays all the action in all your courses.

When you select any link from the list, you see a global view across all your courses.
