Can an Instructor 'block' a student from accessing content?

Jump to solution

Hi, 

I've searched and haven't found what I've been looking for...sounds like a song doesn't it? Smiley Happy 

Our SIS and Canvas are not synced therefore when a student is dropped from SIS, they still show in Canvas for 24-48hrs. 

Is there a way to 'block' access to the course or course content to only the student who's been dropped?

Thanks! Heather

Well, there is a vote for an idea to set visibility options for modules:

But changing visibility for assignments or modules is a lot of unneeded work.

This sounds like a time-sensitive issue, otherwise you would just wait for the student to be removed tomorrow, or the next day. At this point, you probably should contact your institution's LMS administration, so that those with an admin account can immediately remove the student from the course.
