How can I change the visibility of my course?

This article will explain when a course is visible for students and how to adapt the visibility of the course.

A course is automatically set to Active the moment it is created via an uSis-link. This means that the course is visible for students in their course list. The course itself and its contents are available from the start date. This is set automatically on two weeks before the start of the semester. All published content is visible for student from that date forward. The teacher can manually change this to an earlier or later date.

  • Navigate to Course Tools in the navbar of your course.
  • Click on Course Admin.
  • Click on Course Offering Information. 

As shown, the course is set to Active by default.

  • Scroll down to Course has start date, Course has end date.

Set a start date (and/or end date) to your course: 

  • Check the Course has a start date box and fill in the specific date and time from the moment the course should become available to students. 

Students will see the course on their homepages in their course list and the start date will appear on the course banner. They will, however, not be able to access the course until the start date and time.
