Course Menu: Hiding or Showing Course Tools
Hiding or Showing Course Tools
NOTE: Depending on administrator settings, this feature may not be available.
Links to course tools are listed under Course Tools on the course menu. You can temporarily hide any of those links so Students cannot use the course menu to access the tools from that location. However, if you have added links to content in other locations, Students can still access that content even if the link on the course menu is hidden.
For example, you can hide the link to the Assignments tool on the course menu, but if you added a link to an individual assignment in the Course Content tool, Students can still access that particular assignment. Hiding tools on the course menu allows you to organize and present content in a central location.
When you want Students to access tools from the course menu again, you can show the links.
IMPORTANT: If you are designing a template, these features apply to all courses that are based on the template. The Section Designer or Section Instructor can edit these features in a course without changing the template.
Step 1: From Manage Course, click Course Menu.
Step 2: In the Visibility to Students column, do one of the following:
To hide tools, locate each tool and click Hide Link.
The tools are hidden from Students. On the Build and Teach tabs, the hidden tools are marked with (H) on the course menu.
IMPORTANT: In the Course Content and Learning Modules tools, you can add content links to items in course tools. If you hide a course tool, those items are still available to Students. For example, if you add a content link to an assignment from the Learning Modules tool but you hide the Assignments tool, that particular assignment is still available in Learning Modules.
To show tools, locate each tool and click Show Link.
The tools appear on the course menu for Students.
