Publication assistant in the course editor
Access to courses can be changed directly when publishing a course. Use the assistant in the course editor to guide you through the process:
Open the course you wish to publish in the course view. Use the pencil icon at the top of the page to open the editing mode.
The following should be considered in advance:
The legend for these and other symbols can be found in the course editor at the bottom of the page.
Start the assistant by selecting Publish from the Editor tools menu.
Step 1 gives an overview of the included course elements. New or edited course elements will be automatically marked with a tick and published in the next steps. If you do not wish to publish individual course elements yet, remove the tick from the corresponding checkbox. Click on Step 2 to continue.
In Step 2, you can make more changes and, if necessary, specify a particular time for these changes to be implemented in Step 3.
Follow the remaining steps of the assistant and complete your settings with Finish.
For a course resource, the options Public – visible to registered users (BAG) and Public – visible to everyone (BARG) allow you to also enable access for so-called "external users". Just activate the checkbox External users can contribute to the course. For more information on external users, please refer to the help section Roles and rights.
Change publication status from within the course view
To change the publication status of a course in the course view, proceed as follows:
Open the course or learning resource and click on the gear icon.
Select the desired option.
Confirm your choice with Save.
Reference course in the catalogue
Published content should be displayed in a meaningful catalogue structure to allow learners to perform a thematic search for available learning resources in addition to the global search. The learning platform provides a separate area called catalogue in which these resources can be referenced. Instructions on how to include your course in the catalogue can be found in the help section Add course to the catalogue.
