FOR SOME REASON, THE PUBLISH COURSE BUTTON DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE AVAILABLE, EITHER IN THE COURSE SECTION OR ON THE COURSE HOME PAGE. I CAN PUBLISH EACH MODULE, BUT NOT THE COURSE AS A WHOLE. WHAT AM I NOT DOING RIGHTT?
Hi Gary Sawyer Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community. I see that joined us this past August but this appears to be your first post, so we are happy to have you.
Is it at all possible that the course has already been published? If not by you, then perhaps by someone else. (I mention "someone else" because you mention sections, and assuming the course has multiple sections is there another instructor involved?) Could it have been automatically published by your institution?
Anyway, one sure-fire way to check this is to head to Settings on the left menu in the course. Under the Course Details tab, there will be a little designation towards the upper-right that the course has been published, as pictured in the second screen capture here: How do I use course settings?
Unfortunately, that's about the only thing that I can think of based on what you are saying. And no, there is no way for YOU to tell who published the course...nor when, though your local Canvas administrator may be able to.
Hope this helps a bit, Gary.
