When instructors create and manage their Pathway courses, if certain content is not ready for students to view, the corresponding activities and lessons can be unpublished. Unpublished content is completely hidden from students. This means students do not see it at all and it will be excluded from course completion calculation.
By default, after an activity is created, it is published (visible to students). To hide the details of the activity from students, instructors can simply click the gear icon next to that activity, and choose "Unpublish Activity".
After the activity is unpublished, an eye icon with a cross-line will appear to indicate the activity is not visible to students.
Below is what students see. They do not see the unpublished activity at all.
When the activity is ready to be released, instructors can click the gear icon and select "Publish Activity". Now, the activity will become visible to students again.
Unpublish and Publish Lesson
We also support unpublish and publish lessons. To manage a lesson, click the gear icon next to the lesson title. "Publish All Activities" will release all of the activities under this lesson, regardless of their current visibility. "Unpublish All Activities" does the opposite.
