If you have permission to publish your course, you can publish your course in the Course Home Page sidebar.
You can also publish your course in the Course Setup Checklist.
- Publishing a course is a course permission. If you cannot publish your course, your institution has restricted this feature.
- Publishing your course will also send invitations to any users added to your course and allow them to access the course. However, the course invitation will not be sent until after the course start date. (The start date is commonly the term date, unless the term is being overridden by a specific course or section date in Course Settings.)
