My course isn't showing up on my dashboard, but when I click on "all courses" it is there. It says that it hasn't been published yet. What does this mean? and when will it be published so I can actually access it?
Publishing refers to an instructor making a course available to students. So if it is not published your instructor has not made it available. This could be intentional or by accident so you might send an email to the instructor to ask about it.
