5. Make your Course Visible to Students


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.

Once your course is ready for students, make it visible.

  1. Select the Settings option from the menu under your course name.
  2. Toggle Course visibility to Show.
