Publish, Publish, Publish: Key to Canvas as well as academia!

Make sure your students can access your course and its content. Students cannot access your course or any specific items until you have both published the course itself AND published the specific items you want your students to access.

Publish your course site

You can publish your course site in two ways: From the course's homepage, or from your Canvas Dashboard

Publishing your course from your Dashboard

Any unpublished courses that appear on your dashboard will be in their own "unpublished drafts" section of the page. Simply click the publish button on the course card to publish it.

Publishing your course from the course's homepage

Publish your course by clicking the Publish button in the course status bar on the main course page.

A red box with the word "Unpublished" means that students cannot access your course.

A green box with the word "Published" means that enrolled students can access your course.

Note: Published courses that have not yet been accessed by students can be unpublished (Click on image below to enlarge it).
