Moodle: Course Visibility

The Visibility setting determines whether the course appears in the list of courses for students. Apart from teachers and administrators, users are not allowed to enter the course unless this setting is changed to "Show." Courses are hidden sitewide after the term is over. If a course has an incomplete student the instructor will need to make it visible for them to finish their work.

How to Make a Course Available in Moodle

1. Log in to Moodle and select the desired course. 

2. Click on the Administration Menu Gear Icon and then select Edit Settings.

Administration Menu Edit Settings Option


3. Click the Visibility dropdown menu at the top right, and select Show.
