As course staff, you must carefully control which content is visible to students and when.
You control content visibility through these features in Studio:
These features work together to control content visibility for students.
You schedule release dates for sections and subsections. By default, a subsection inherits the release date of the section it is in, though you can change it to another date.
By defining release dates, you can ensure that content is available to students as planned without requiring manual intervention at that future time.
Published units are not visible to students until the scheduled release date. When the section and subsection have different release dates, published units are not visible until both dates have passed.
You publish units to make them visible to students. Students see the last published version of a unit if the section and subsection it is in are released.
Students do not see units that have never been published, and they do not see unpublished changes to units or components within units. Therefore, you can make changes to units in released subsections without disrupting the student experience.
For more information, see Unit Publishing Status.
You can publish all changes in a section or subsection at once, or publish changes to individual units. See:
