Make a Brightspace LE Course Active
Automatically provisioned Brightspace LE courses are made available to the "instructor of record" listed in Banner via dates that correspond to terms. When instructors make a course active, the course becomes visible and accessible to students between the start and end dates of the course.
Activate the course from the "My Home" page:
At the "My Home" page, after a course has been pinned, under the "My Courses" widget, the statement "Inactive" appears on the course image if a course IS NOT active. The absence of the statement indicates that a course IS active.
To activate a course, first select the contextual menu from the course image.
Then select "Course Offering Information" from the contextual drop menu.
The "Course Offering Information" page will display.
Toward the middle of the page is the "Active: Course is Active" checkbox.
Select the "Active: Course is Active" checkbox and then select the "Save" button at the bottom of the page - the course is made active so students can see it and access it.
Activate a course from inside a course:
Go into the course by selecting to go into the course.
When in the course, select the "Course Admin" link from the course navigation bar.
On the "Course Administration" page, select the "Course Offering Information" link.
On the "Course Offering Information" page select the "Active: Course is Active" checkbox and then select the "Save" button at the bottom of the page - the course is made active so students can see it and access it.
