HELP: I am able to log in, but all I see is this page and not my courses.

Answer: You have somehow docked your screen. To fix this, log in and scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen. On the left hand side you will see the words, You are logged in. Directly diagonal to that you will see a small blue box. Hit the box then refresh your screen. This will clear the docking feature.
