Opening Your Course
Posted by , Last modified by Melinda Barnsley on 15 April 2020 02:06 PM

By default, all courses in Moodle are set to be hidden from students. The instructor can open their course at any point, allowing students to enter. Please refer to the steps below to activate your course several days before it is scheduled to begin. Also, please note that the course will remain open until the instructor has changed the setting back to "Hide."


  1. Locate the course's Administration block (usually found on the left sidebar) and select Edit settings (see left image below).

      Edit settings button

      5. In the General section located at the top of this page, locate the Visible option. Open this menu and select Show 

      Course visibility setting

      6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save changes. Your course has now been opened and students can access the course via myPlymouth.
