How do I "unlock" a page on my Canvas source CEE599D so that the students can see it ?
William, I don't have access to your course, but a couple of things you might want to check are:
If none of these things help, please provide let us know and provide more information about where the page is and how you are trying to access it.
Hope this helped!
Hi William Dershowitz...
By chance, is the Module (where your Page is located) locked until a certain date? I tried locking a module in my own sandbox course, and even though the Module and Page were published, I could not access it via the Student View.
I was unaware that the "Page" was part of a module, as I am not using "modules" this year but am directing students to the page directly.
On investigation, however, I was able to publish the module that the page is tied to and now the students can see it!
Thank you very much for your help!
Awesome! Glad we were able to help!
Kona, is there a way for an instructor to see discussions, assignments, etc. that are locked? I want to check things in my course that I haven't opened to students yet, but that means when I use Student View, I can't access them, either. For instance, I want to test out a discussion with a grading rubric, but to do so, I would have to make it available -- and I don't want students stumbling across it until I'm ready for them.
C. David, probably the easiest thing to do in this case is use your Canvas Test Environment to check this - How do I access the Canvas test environment? It's where you can go test things from your course (feel free to publish things/unlock things and then look with student view) with no fear of students ever seeing/accessing/being impacted by it! I do quite a bit of checking things in the test environment and it works great!
D'oh! I always forget about the beta environment. What a great idea. I'm going to paint it on my screen so I won't forget.
No problem! It's a great tool to have in your Canvas tool belt, but it often gets overlooked!
I have published my home page AND I have Pages index page visible to students. The page is not under any Module.
I don't see any locks in "student view". However, my students told me that all they see from their home page are locks....
Thanks for your help.
I have solved the issue - the image files themselves were unpublished.
