Settings to check for launching a Private: Access Code class
It's important to double-check your course settings before going live, to make sure you have completed all the settings required for a Private: Access Code class.
Go to Course Setup > General > Change Class.
Check that your class type is set to Private: Access Code.
This step is optional, but we highly recommend setting a start date where your course goes live in 3-4 weeks' time. This enables you to promote your course and get a group of students starting together. This article explains in further detail.
Go to Administer Students > Timeline.
Set the class to be Scheduled and set the start date and time.
If you need to stage the release of your modules, you can do this here in the Class Schedule. Drag the modules to the right to delay the start time.
Once you've checked all of these settings, you can turn your course online by following the steps in this article: How do I turn my course online?
