6. Activate (Make Visible) Your Course

Don’t forget that all courses by default are set to “Inactive” meaning students can’t see them. You have up to 30 days prior to the official start of course to make your course “Active” by going to Course Admin > Course Offering Information and scrolling down the page to check the box off that says “Course is Active”. When the checkbox is checked – the course is visible!
