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, 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.
