How do I customize visibility options for course content?

Content visibility options can be customized to allow specific users to view course content. Currently, only the Syllabus can be customized as a content item. Content visibility is defined by the course visibility option, so content visibility can only be set to an equal or greater structure.

Like with course visibility, content visibility can be set to one of the same visibility options: Course, Institution, or Public.

  • Course: Content is available to all users associated (enrolled) in the course.
  • Institution: Content is available to users associated with the institution. This option allows users in your institution to view the selected content before they enroll in the course.
  • Public: Content is available to anyone with the URL.
