Enable a Course

To create a website for your course in Moodle, you use the "Enable Course" too.  Enabling a course is not the same as making a course visible to students, enabling a course makes it available to the faculty and/or TAs in the course, toggling visibility (in the Course settings area) makes a course available for students to see. 

We made it easy to enable courses, from the home screen, it is only two clicks away!

To enable your course, simply follow the steps below:

Logging into Moodle from the top right hand side of the home page.
If you have not logged in already, do that first.


Clicking the "Enable" button in the "Enable Course" block.
On the right side of the My Home page, look for the Enable Course block.  Click the Enable button for the course you want to create a site for.  


Clicking "Enable" again  in the window that opens.
In the window that pops up, click the Enable button again to confirm you want to create the course.

You will be automatically taken to the new course you just enabled. Your students can not see your course at this time. So go ahead and mess around with all the content that you want, nobody is watching.



Clicking the show button in the "Course Visibility" block.
Once your course is ready for the public, click the Show button in the Course Visibility block on the top right hand side of the page.

The button label will change to Visible and turn green. Your course is now accessible to students.

That is all there is to it!
