Course Visibility

NOTE: Beginning 2019 Summer term courses will automatically open and close based on the provisioned start and end dates of a course in Moodle. You can change these settings after the fact or change your course start and end dates to reflect your preferred availability.

  • Default Course start date is the Monday of the first week the course is set to begin. This is most often the first week of the term.
  • Default Course end date is Monday, week after finals (same day grades are due from faculty.)

These instructions are for when you want to re-open an old course or hide a current course if it’s not ready or going to be used.

Enter your Moodle course.

Expand the Actions Menu (gear icon) from the top-right corner of the course.

Click on the Edit settings option.


The Edit course settings page appears.

Find the Visible drop down menu and select Show or Hide depending on your needs.

Scroll to the bottom of this page.

Click on the Save and display button.

The class is now ‘live’. Enrolled students will be able to access the course.
