The Course Status (Published/Unpublish) box is missing after I changed the homepage to Course Module.
It doesn't seem browser issue as all browsers return the same outcome.
Anyone else bothered by it?
The missing comes if any grades are added to the grade book. The course cannot be unpublished after entering the first grade in the grade book.
I noticed that, too, Tay Pei Chin , and yes indeed, I am troubled by it, but I think the best thing to do right now may be to "wait and see" and then--if it is still missing in action after a bit of time--to raise concern about it. I sense that whole general area in Canvas may still be in a bit of an unfinished state, and I base that primarily on Erin Hallmark's very final reply in the latest Canvas Production Release Notes (2017-07-15) . Scroll all the way down to view it. So you may want to see how this all sorts out first.
In the meanwhile, however, be aware that you can tell if a course has been published or not by heading to that course's Settings menu item, where the status is shown in the Course Details area in the upper right:
Hope this helps a bit.
Mohammad Awadallah is correct. This is a change in behavior, but I do not know in which release this change was made.
