Moodle Start and End Date

The course start date and course end date come through automatically for provisioned courses. Courses will automatically open and close on those date and times.

NOTE: You cannot change the start date and end date of your provisioned courses in Moodle. These dates align with those provided to Course Scheduling (as displayed in myClackamas > Course Management).

If you’d like to hide a provisioned course that will remain unused, you’ll need to hide the course from students the day AFTER the start date or you can also un-hide the course the day AFTER the end date of the course.

Enter the Moodle course.

From the secondary navigation, select the Settings item.

Confirm the Course Start Date value. This should match the start date listed for your course in myClackamas > Course Management.

NOTE: If your course starts during the first week of the term, the course start date should be Monday of the first week of the term.

If your course starts after the first week of the term, the course start date should match your first meeting date.

If not already unchecked, uncheck the Calculate the end date from the number of sections box.

NOTE: This is especially important if you use Topics and the number of topics does not match the number of weeks in your course.

Confirm the Course End Date value. The Moodle value will be 7 days past the end date listed in myClackamas > Course Management to give you time to finish grades before the course is hidden.

NOTE: If your start date or end date does not match those in myClackamas > Course Management, please contact the OLET department at

If those dates match but are incorrect, please contact your department administrator.
