Once you’ve created the links for the items you want in your course menu, you might want to change the availability setting for the link. You choose whether or not a course menu link is visible to students. As the instructor, you will always be able to see the links you have created. If a link has a gray box and a diagonal line next to it, that means the link is not currently visible to students. 
A plain gray box indicates that the link contains no content. 

Step-by-step guide

  1. Hover over the course menu link that you want to edit.
  2. Select the drop-down arrow next to the course link.

  3. Choose Show Link to make the link visible to students.

  4. Alternatively, if you are trying to make a link unavailable to students, select Hide Link.


Remember to check for the gray box with the diagonal line before instructing students to visit a link on your course menu. See Troubleshooting Students Unable to See Items in Your Course for more information.
