Turn Course ON for Students

Although students are automatically added to BbLearn courses four weeks before the semester starts, they won't gain access to a course until it is "turned on" by the Instructor. Turning a course on automatically triggers an email to your enrolled students to let them know about the course availability.

Note: Turn on JUST the MASTER course if several sections are merged together. Leave the CHILD courses off.

How to Turn a Course On:

The easiest way to turn your course on so that it is available to students is to click on the "closed padlock" icon displayed in the upper right corner of your course. This changes it to an "open padlock".

  • "Closed padlock" indicates course not turned on -- is not available to students. Click this icon to turn the course on.
Padlock Closed
  • "Open padlock" indicates course is turned on and students have access.
Padlock Open

Turn Course On (alternate method):

  • Go to the Control Panel
  • Select Customization
  • Select Properties
  • Under Set Availability, check Yes to turn your course on for students.
  • Press Submit
  • Your students will receive an email with details on how to login to your course.

Students still not seeing content?

If you have successfully turned your course ON, but students are unable to see some or all of the Course Content, troubleshoot via the Show/Hide Content help page.
