Course Visibility Addon

The Course Visibility Addon allows you to create private courses for your students that don’t appear on your school’s homepage.

Activating the Course Visibility Addon

  3. Click “Activate course visibility”

How to Use the Course Visibility Addon

Here are the steps to creating a private course for your school.

1. Publish your course.

You’ll need to do this first in order to get the URL for your course’s landing page. You can unpublish the course as soon as you complete the next step.

2. Copy your landing page URL.

Follow these steps to get the URL to your course’s landing page:

  1. Go to your school’s homepage.
  2. Click on the course widget.
  3. Copy the URL of the landing page.

3. Set your course to “private.”

To make your course private, open the Course Settings Pane for the course and set the option for “Course visibility” to “private.”

When you do this, the course will be removed from your school’s homepage and the only way to find it will be to visit the URL you copied during Step #2.

You can now share this URL with anyone you want to invite to your private course.

Access for registered students

Once a student has registered for a private course, the course widget will appear for them on your school’s homepage under their “My Courses” section so that they can continue to find it. They do not need to remember the private course URL.
