Make a menu item available or unavailable to users

Instructors and Teaching Assistants can make a menu item available to users in their courses. You will know a menu item is not available to users because there will be a small icon to the right of the title of the menu item.  The icon is a box with a diagonal line running through it (see image below).  If you place your mouse over the icon you should get a pop up message that says “This link is hidden from students”.

  3. From the drop down menu select the entry titled “Show Link”.  This will make the menu item available to users (students/participants).  The menu item will automatically become available to users.  You will know the menu item is now available to users because the icon which shows the menu item is unavailable will disappear.
