Students can't see my Moodle course - Why?

Moodle courses can be hidden from students, and this is the most common reason why students can't see their courses. Courses in Moodle are hidden from students by default until the courses' start date. So, how do you show your course to students if it is hidden?

1. First, go to Moodle and open the course

2. Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the course page and select "Edit settings":


3. Under the General section, change the course visibility from "Hidden" to "Show":


4. When done, select "Save and display":


If you still have a student who cannot see their course, you may need to check that the student is enrolled in the course in Moodle. If you do not see the student listed in Moodle, it may be because the student enrolled/registered for the course late. If this is the case, the student should reach out to IT ( or Haley Kinder ( to learn more about their Moodle course.
