Students: Lost your course?

by Bobby Deetz -

If your current course seems to disappear, it has most likely changed status from "In-progress" to "past." You will be able to find all of your courses by going to your avatar in the upper-right and using the drop-down to get to your profile. Another way is to use the filter on the Dashboard to view your past, in-progress, or future courses. If you still cannot find your course, it could be that it has been hidden by your instructor. They will need to unhide it in order for you to access it.

Faculty: Check your end dates!

by Bobby Deetz -

Is there an end date for your course and is it correct? This will move your course from the “In-Progress” status to “Past” making it easy to keep courses organized on people’s dashboards. However, if your course ends too soon your students may not be able to find it! To check/edit this date, navigate to Edit Settings and find the “Course end date” setting. Make any necessary changes (be sure to check the time of day too) and scroll down to click save.
