Activate Your Course: Make Your Course Visible to Students

By default, D2L course shells are inactive, and invisible to enrolled students until activated by the instructor, regardless of start and end dates. If you need to activate your course, you can do so on the same page as step 4. 

On your home page, after the name of the course, inactive courses are marked with Inactive on the thumbnail image.

  1. From your D2L home page, click on the course that you want to activate.
  2. In the navigation bar, click Course Admin from the navigation bar.
  3. Click on Course Offering Information from the list.
  4. Scroll down to the Active section and check the box for Course is active.
  5. Click Save.
