Questions about Teacher Start/End Dates and Course Visibility

I am under the impression that a teacher can see a course for a period of time past their end date in the course (@30 days). I believe that this feature exists so that a teacher can finish up grading student work, etc after a course ends.

However, I am running into a situation where a teacher continues to be active in a course well past 30 days after their end date. Teachers are asking me about still seeing courses from last school year.

Enrollments remain visible on the home pages for 3 months, not 90 days, after an enrollment end date passes.

Thanks for the clarification. Is there any way to reduce that time?

I know that teachers can hide courses, so they do not display on the home page. But, even with courses hidden, teachers still see students in their People list, from the hidden courses. They would also like to hide students from classes that have ended.

Currently, there is no way to adjust the time.

However, that makes complete sense and I, personally, had not realized that hiding a course didn't remove them from the People page. I'll submit it to our team to see if they can get the People page to also honor the preference of hiding a course.

Also, just to clarify, students will see courses for two weeks past their end date, correct? Then the courses should drop off their home screens?

Yes, that is correct. A student's course is removed from their home page 2 weeks after the enrollment end date.

Followup Question- our new school year enrollments are starting to go in, and first semester classes with start dates of Aug 5 and second semester classes with start dates in November are both showing up already on the teacher's Buzz pages. Is this supposed to happen? It hasn't happened before, and having all classes show up for teachers makes their home page really hard to navigate.

 

Thanks!

Yes, this is supposed to happen. Teacher courses always show in advance allowing them to work on them as soon as they are available. They can hide courses from their home page, though, if that is preferred.

Huh. Thanks! I'm not sure why we didn't realize that before.
