How do I make a course inactive?

When a course is inactive, students will not be able to access the course or even see it in their course lists.

These instructions assume you have already logged in to D2L and entered the course in which you wish to work.

To make a D2L course inactive:

  1. Click on Resource in the navigation bar.
  2. In the menu that opens, click Course Admin.
  3. Follow the Course Offering Information link.
  4. Uncheck the box next to Course is active.
  5. Click the Save button.

Do not uncheck Course has start date or Course has end date.
