- By default, Canvas sites become available to students one week before the first day of the semester. To make your site available prior to that date, you can change the Start and End dates.
- Regardless of availability dates, you must publish your site before it is visible to users.
Students cannot see content in a Draft state. Students can only see the content of your Canvas site if it is Published.
- Modules must be Published in order to for students to view them and the content within them. See How Do I Use Draft State in Modules for more information.
- Each item within a Module (A File, Page, Quiz, Discussion, Link) must be Published in order for students to see it. See this list of help articles on Draft and Publish State of different content items.
Students can only see navigation buttons that are Enabled. See How do I manage Course Navigation Links for more information.
