How do I make my Moodle course visible / available to my students?
Moodle courses are set to automatically become available four (4) days prior to the course’s official start date. There is no need to manually open your course to student view unless you would like it to be available to students earlier than four days before the start of the semester / Summer/Winter session. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific dates.
Instructors may choose to make courses available before this time frame or close courses to student view at any time. If needed, login to MyHeliotrope to confirm your enrollments/registration.
