People can't find my course (it is published). Any ideas why?
Is this a self enrollment course or are the students already in the course (you can see them in the People tab)? If they are already in the course, they may need to just "star" the course so that it appears on their menu.
How do I customize my Courses list as a student?
This is a self-enrollment MOOC. I tried to search for my course, GeoTech Veterans, and could not find it. I would like for someone who is interested to be able to search for the course by name and sign up. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Rodney Jackson Welcome to the Canvas Community!
While I appreciate your faith in my knowledge, evidenced by you emailing me at work, I know very little about FFT courses.
I suspect you are using a Free-for-Teachers (FFT) course, but if I am wrong, let me know.
I do know that in the hosted versions of Canvas a course set for open enrollment, still requires that the participant be enrolled as a Canvas user and you share an enrollment link. And I also know that if a course is set as public, it means that the course can be viewed publicly in your institution, but you can send folks a link and they can interact with the course whether enrolled in that instance of Canvas or not.
Either hosted or FFT, it seems to me that you would still have to find a way to deliver a link. Neither of those settings mean the course is truly a "Public" web page found in a Google Search or similar search engines.
This guide may help explain better What user enrollment and registration options are available in Canvas?
I have asked some folks who have a working knowledge of FFT to chime in and help us out.
