I was recently forwarded an email from a colleague that contained the following inquiry from an instructor:
What is the best practice for making online content available to students from the start of the semester? I have a 12-week course designed in weekly modules. Should the entire course be made available to students to work on when and as they wish, or should access to the modules be restricted by week?
We did receive follow-up email that strongly recommended leaving courses open, for a number of very sound reasons in my mind.
I would love to hear from others in the community on this issue.
