Navigation block my units

The Navigation menu block

Clicking on the My units link in the Navigation menu (see image right) will display your current units as a list below the link.

You can then click any of the unit names to go directly to that unit.

This menu is available everywhere in LEO for quick access to your units.

Note: if you cannot see a your unit in the My Units list, it may not yet be accessible, or you may not be enrolled in it. Please contact your tutor or course coordinator for more information.

The LEO Dashboard

The Dashboard provides an overview of your units. You can click the Dashboard link in the Navigation menu, or click the purple My Units box on the home page just after logging into LEO.

There are two tabs, Timeline and Units. By default, you should see your units. On this page:

  • Units are visually presented in blocks. To access a unit, click on the title of the unit.
  • The Timeline tab displays a list of activities sorted by due dates.

Breadcrumb navigation

While navigating around LEO, you should see the red bar below the page heading, for example Home / My units / Current unit / Discussion Forum. These links are a "path" from the home page to where you are in LEO currently, and can help you navigate back to a unit section, unit homepage or dashboard if you need to.

Unit navigation sub-menu

When inside a unit, a sub-menu of the unit link will appear (see image below), which displays a breakdown of the unit sections and activities, allowing you to locate specific information in the unit.

You can also click the arrow next to the unit title to expand and collapse this sub-menu.


Each unit in LEO may look slightly different depending on your Faculty or your Lecturer. There are some similarities between all units, however.

Unit layout

  • Units will be broken up into sections which could be topic-based or week-based.
  • The first few sections will include important information about the unit such as:
    • a unit outline which includes learning outcomes and due dates for assessments etc.
    • an 'Announcements' forum your lecturer will use to post important notices as they come up
    • an introduction to your lecturer and instructions for how best to contact them.

"Breadcrumbs"/navigation pathway

  • Whatever page you are on, the breadcrumbs on the red bar at the top of the page will tell you the unit you are in and what area or activity you are currently looking at. You can follow the breadcrumbs back by clicking on them - they are active links.

Your unit outline

  • The unit outline is usually located in the Information or top section of your unit.
    NOTE: In some faculties, National units may include your unit outline in your campus section or tile.

Your Grades

  • When assessments are marked in LEO, you can access these marks from the Grades link in the Administration menu.

At the end of each semester of teaching period your units are archived and listed by year:
