Making a Course Site Available/Unavailable for Students


How do I make a course available/unavailable for students to view?


Course availability used to be a part of the Faculty Tools. The setting is now located inside the course.


There are two ways to toggle course availability in Blackboard:

  1. Go to the course in question.
  2. In the Control Panel, click Customization.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Scroll down to SET AVAILABILITY and choose the appropriate setting.
  5. Click Submit.


  1. Click on any menu item that goes to a content area (e.g., Content, Assignments, Tests & Quizzes, etc.).
  2. At the top-right, between the Student Preview button and the Edit Mode toggle there is a  padlock button that toggles course availability.
