Making a Course Visible to Select Groups


You can define which courses display to students on the catalog page based on which Group that student is in. 


Step 1: Create a group

You will first need to create a student group. Visit this article for steps on how to create a group, and assign students to that group:

Step 2: Update the course catalog visibility

You can update this setting for a course that has already been published, or update it at the time of publishing.

To update a course that has already been published:

  1. Navigate to Domains & Publishing:
  2. Edit the published course's settings
  3. Scroll down to the Catalog Visibility section, and deselect "Visible to all users on the catalog page"


Step 3: Link your courses's catalog visibility to a group

When you uncheck the "Visible to all users on the catalog page" setting, the section will expand, which displays all available groups you have created.

  1. Click your cursor on a group's name to select it.
  2. Click the arrow button to move that group from the left column to the right column
  3. Click Save

Once you have defined which group(s) can see this course in the catalog, visibility will be limited to only those students who are part of the assigned group.

    Heads up. The 2nd and 3rd screenshots are not accurate for "Step 2: Update the course catalog visibility." The section name is currently "Group Access."
