My course is ready! How do I turn my course online to start collecting enrolments?
Congratulations on getting your course ready to go live! To turn your course online to start collecting enrolments, follow these steps.

Your course is now ready for students to enrol!
Setting a future start date to build enrolments
We recommend setting a start date for your course, in a few weeks from now, to give you maximum time to promote your course and build up enrolments. That way, when your course starts, there will be a group of students starting together. To do this, follow these steps.
Go to Administer Students > Timeline
Set a start date on your class
When a start date is set, un-enrolled students will see the Course Landing Page like this:
When a student enrols, they will see this message on the Course Landing Page:
We also recommend setting up a Course Start Email in Course Setup > Advanced, to remind pre-enrolled students when the course goes live and they can begin progressing through the course activities.
The Course Start Email a student receives:
My course won't turn online! What do I do?
Sometimes when a course is turned online too quickly, we like to do a quick check to make sure it's ready for students to enrol. It can take a few days for this process to be completed so please be patient!
If you're still having trouble, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a link to the course you'd like to turn online. We will be happy to assist you.
