Make your course visible to students

When new course spaces are created in Moodle they are automatically hidden from students. ‘Course Leader’ and any other participants with teacher roles are still able to view, access and build content on the Moodle course space.

There will be a red banner visible at the top of the Moodle course space to flag that the course is currently hidden from students.
