Making Your Past Courses Unavailable
Hello ECU Faculty
The ECU helpdesk and Bb support staff are getting lots of calls about past semesters’ sites still being available from the student perspective. Please make your past sites unavailable today or over the weekend. Having past sites open is never a good idea because….
- You generally don’t want your past students to still have access to course content and assessments.
- It confuses students who think they have completed the course but still see it listed in the My Courses module.
Here is how to turn student access to your past course sites off.
Control Panel / Customization / Properties / Set Availability / Toggle to NO.
Hiding Your Past Courses
Many of you have called and emailed about how to hide past courses. Hiding is a nice way of removing past sites from your view without deleting them. A best practice is to only show the courses for which you need access, e.g., only the Fall 2014 sites. (You may want to make sure the course is unavailable to students first; see instructions above.)
Here is how to remove past sites from your MY COURSES view.
Click the WHEEL ICON in the MY COURSES Module / uncheck the courses you don’t want to see / Drag and drop to re-order if you want / Click SUBMIT.
