I cannot see the course menu (containing navigation tools such as Course Content, My Grades, Announcements, etc.) in Compass 2g.
The course menu may be hidden. To show the course menu, go to the far left of the window (just inside the window's border). A gray bar should become dark gray and the mouse should become an arrow pointing to the right.
If you hover over it, text will pop up saying "Show Course Menu." Clicking this will expand the course menu.
