Is your course Active?

Once your Brightspace course is ready for prime-time (allow learners to access), make your course active by going to COURSE ADMIN -> COURSE OFFERING INFORMATION and click checkbox next to “Course is Active” about half-way down the page and SAVE.

Making course active

Only when an instructor has made the course active, will enrolled learners be able to VIEW/ENTER/ACCESS course up to one week prior to the first day of class and for most this “one week pre-padding” begins a week before at midnight. Every course is also set to now include “one week post-padding” as well. Please contact the IDAT team for changes to START DATE or END DATE upon registrar approval.

NOTE: Learners can see a future course (prior to START DATE) IF the course is active BUT cannot enter sooner than 1 week prior to beginning of semester.
