Student Preview Mode Enabled

Beginning Spring 2020, a student preview mode will be enabled for courses that are published prior to the Spring 2020 semester start date of January 6, 2020. If teachers publish their Spring 2020 semester courses prior to this date, students will be able to access the course and only view the home page, modules (if enabled), syllabus, and descriptions of assignments & quizzes that are published within the course.

Students will not be able to participate in any of the course activities prior to the official start of term. This change will allow students to better prepare for their upcoming courses. For example, students will be able to see the required textbook listed in your syllabus and the class schedule that has been outlined.

If you do not want students to be able to see your course content prior to the official start of the term, you can wait to publish the course until the term officially starts on January 6, 2020.

This change will be in effect for all future full semesters and parts of term (Block 1, Block 2, Weekend Courses, etc.). As soon as you publish a course in a future term, students registered for that course will have view-only access until the official start date of said semester/part of term.
