How do I make the Assignments module visible to students?
Hi Bill Ditewig - The quick answer to your question--though stay tuned, because I think you may be asking something else from the way it's worded--is to make sure that the Module itself it published. There is additional information here: How do I use Draft State in Modules? . Head to the Modules page, and simply click the publish icon to ensure that the individually-published items within the Module will then be seen. That is, however, assuming you are using Modules at all. That's because what I think you may really be asking is about (and forgive me if I am incorrect) is the Assignments group that appears, by default, on everyone's Assignments page, as shown here: How do I use the Assignments Index Page? So long as your individual assignments are published, students will see them. However, it is extremely important to realize that, by defaults, students do not see the Assignments page the same way that you do. In fact, I encourage you to use the Student View to check this out.
As you will see, students will see your Assignments page in reverse chronological order by due date of the assignment, grouped by "Upcoming" and "Past" as well as "Undated." This is illustrated here: How do I view Assignments as a student? To view assignments as YOU see them, they would have to click on the Show byType icon on the upper-right of the screen, as shown here: How do I filter assignments by type as a student?
I hope this helps; but please let me know if I misunderstood your question, Bill!
Hello there, Bill Ditewig...
As I was looking through older discussion questions posted here in the Canvas Community, I came across your posting from a couple months ago. We haven't heard from you since you first posted this question on the Community website. It looks as though Ken Black has provided you with a bunch of great information here. Have you had a chance to review his feedback? Did it help to answer your question? Do you have any follow-up questions that still need answering? The only other thing I could think of was this Guide: How do I reorder and hide Course Navigation links?. I wasn't sure if you were asking about showing/hiding the course navigation buttons in your course..."Assignments" being one of those buttons. If you feel that Ken's response has helped to answer your question, please feel free to mark it as "Correct". However, if you're still looking for some help from members of the Community, please post a message below so that we can continue to assist you. For now, since we've not heard back from you and since there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for over two months, I'm going to mark it as "Assumed Answered". However, that won't keep you or others from posting additional questions or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's alright with you. Looking forward to hearing back from you, Bill.
