Courses are created unavailable by our automated course creation process. It is the instructor's responsibility to make the course available when it is time for the students to use the course. CRN courses are automatically made unavailable once at the end of the term; if the instructor wishes the students to continue using the course after the term is over, they can make the course available again.
Users that are unavailable to a particular course cannot view that course. Our automated enrollment processes use the availability of the user to indicate registered or dropped status. In order for the student to view a course, both the course and the student have to be set to available. (See Student Availability)
When a course is created, it is automatically set to be unavailable to students. Students do not have access to your course until you make the course available. In order to make the course available:
Continuous course duration is important. ATUS will use our automated systems to make your course unavailable at the start of the subsequent term. If you set an end date for the course, either by selecting start and end dates or setting a course to expire a certain number of days after the date of enrollment, students will be unable to access the course to see their grades after the end date.
