When your course shell is created, by default it will be hidden from students so that you can work on it.
It is then up to you, the course instructor, to turn the course on when you are ready for students to view it. We recommend doing this early, as soon as the syllabus has been uploaded, however it must be done by the first day of class!
- Go to your course page
- In the settings box (left hand side of the page, below navigation) click on Edit Settings
- In the General section at the top, change the option next to Visible to "Show".
- Save changes
You can open your course page and then hide indiviudal elements on the page, in order to work on the page while it is open!
