Making A Course Visible

By default, students can’t see their courses in ACORN until you make them "Visible" (they won't see them at all). This gives you a chance to set them up in advance. Here are the steps to make your course(s) "Visible" to your students:

  1. Log into ACORN and enter your course.
  2. Near the top right corner of the window, click on the gear icon and select Edit settings (view image).
  3. In the General section at the top, you will see an option called Course visibility. Change the drop-down selection from Hide to Show (1), scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the Save and display (2) (view image) button. If students are still unable to see the course, have them log out of and back into ACORN.

Now that your course has been made "Visible", students will see it listed in the COURSE OVERVIEW section of their Dashboard under In progress (1). If the course has not started yet but is "Visible", it will show up under Future (2). Courses that have ended will show up under Past (3). All "Visible" courses can be viewed by selecting All (except removed from view) (4) (view image).
