Creating Courses with Moodle: 5. Make your Course Visible to Students

In the next unit, Understanding Course Enrollments, you will learn how students are enrolled into your Moodle course automatically via the BIONIC registration system. However, by default, Haverford courses are NOT VISIBLE to students–even those that are registered for your course.

   Students will NOT be able to see your course until you make it visible by following these directions!


  1. In course administration, go to Edit settings

  2. Change Visible to Show.

  3. Scroll to the bottom and click the Save and display button.

There are some quick ways to see if a course is available to students. Courses that are visible to students appear in redtext on your Moodle home page; courses that not visible to students are dimmed grey text font.
