5. Make your Course Visible to Students

Tags Moodle

In the next unit, Understanding Course Enrollments, you will learn how students get enrolled into your Moodle course, either automatically via the BIONIC registration system or manually. However, that alone does not let students see your course materials. By default, Haverford Moodle courses are NOT VISIBLE to students—even those that are registered for your course.

   Students will NOT be able to see your course until you make it visible by following these directions!   


  1. In course administration, go to Edit settings

Check to see if your course is visible

There are a few quick ways to see if a course is already visible or available to students.  The easiest is to look for a "Hidden from students" message on your Moodle dashboard, as illustrated below.
