Understanding My Home and Course Home

My Home is your starting point inside Cobra Learning. It is also where you can access widgets, tool links on the navbar, organization-level content, and other available resources.

Course Home is the first page you see when you navigate to a course. Similar to My Home, it also contains widgets, tool links on the navbar, and resources that enable you to access account settings, and course specific content.


The minibar is your main navigation tool to courses and personal settings in Cobra Learning. The minibar contains a link to My Home, the course selector, alerts, and your personal menu.

Course selector

Your courses are listed in the course selector, and you can sort them by course name or by date last accessed. You can also select specific courses from the course selector and pin them to the top of the list for easier navigation.  You may also access your courses through the My Courses widget. 

Access a course

Access the course you want from the course selector. Click Load More Courses to expand the course list, or use the Search field to find your course.


Messages  Email and Instant messages alerts.

Subscriptions  New blog posts, and discussion posts in forums, topics, and specific threads you subscribed to.

Personal menu

The personal menu contains links to notification options, account settings, and logout. Click your name on the minibar to open the personal menu.  You may also access these through the My Settings widget.


The navbar is your main navigation tool within a course. It displays the course name, tool links, custom links, and custom link groups. Each course can have its own unique navbar to provide relevant tools and resources.
