How do I hide a List, Lesson or an Assessment from my students?

You can hide any content within the Content Library from students so that they're unable to access it. 

This can be beneficial for students that tend to jump too far ahead without focusing on their current work or for preventing students from seeing an assessment before they sit it.

Checking visibility settings

First, navigate to the Content tab from your dashboard, and toggle to Edit mode.

Edit mode and the Content tab

Navigate to your desired content, and click on it to display a sidebar on the right side of the screen. This sidebar will tell you the current visibility settings for that piece of content. 

The icon next to the lesson name will also display an eye symbol if it's hidden from students.

All teachers at your school can always see content under My School's Content, regardless of visibility settings.

Hiding activities

There are two ways to hide activities from students:

  1. Right-click the activity and click Hide from students.
  2. Click the Hide from students dialogue on the sidebar.

This option is available in all sections apart from the My Content section, as this is a private workspace for you only.

Hide from students option

To unhide an activity, simply repeat the same action.

Hiding folders

To hide a folder, either right-click it in the left-hand pane and select Hide from students or select it and click Hide folder from students in the right-hand pane.

Hide from students option

Again, simply repeat the action to make the folder visible again.

This option is currently only available for top-level folders under My School's Content, not sub-folders.
