How do you make OnCourse elements visible and invisible?

Step-by-step guide

You may set up when sections/topics are released. It is important that - if you are using the section to "tell" the content in it to open - you keep all of your elements VISIBLE, not hidden.

  1. Go to the section that you want to make changes to.
  2. Click on the gear icon, to edit settings.

  3. Skim down, to locate the heading Restrict Access.
  4. Click on that heading, to open the options in it.
  5. Under Access restrictions, the default is NONE. Click on the button to Add restriction.
  6. From the options listed, choose the second button, Date.

  7. Keep the default selection "Student must." Then change the date to match the time constraints that you want to set.
  8. Click to Save Changes.


  • One element in OnCourse that cannot be hidden or timed is an Announcement from a News Forum.
  • Consider using timed release of sections, to stagger access to content.
