How do I hide my course from students?

Course visibility is indicated with grey (hidden from students) and pink (visible to students) in the breadcrumb trail of your course homepage. If you have a course you wish to hide from students:

  1. Go to the course.
  2. Click Settings from the top right.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Set Course visibility to Hide.
  5. Click Save and Display (bottom of the page).

If you now go to your course homepage, the title of the course appears in grey in the breadcrumb trail.
