Course Section Dates in Canvas Free-for-Teacher

Jump to solution

It's very hard to find accurate information on course dates in regards to FFT accounts. I just want to confirm that there is NOT a feature for setting start and end dates for a section in a course. Is that correct?

We run a course several times in a year and currently create a different section each time we run it to control student enrollment and access to assignments.

We would like to control student access to the entire course by setting an end date after which they would not be able to view the course. This is not possible in FFT, correct?

@JenniferAdmin  Teachers of FFT courses should be able to navigate to the settings area of their courses, click on a section, and use Edit Section to place an end date on the section. Enabling the "Students can only participate..." checkbox puts the course in a view-only mode. I took this screenshot while acting as a teacher in a FFT course.

Thanks, @Stefanie ! I was clicking on the edit option to change the name and didn't even notice the options on the right of the screen. This is great information.

HOWEVER, I'm really looking for an option to close student access to the course content completely without having to close the course. What happens if I click on Conclude or Delete in the student access report for a specific class? Will it affect their enrollment in other classes? Will I still have some way of knowing that they were in this class?

@JenniferAdmin  Concluding a student in a course won't affect the student's other course enrollments.
