By default, Canvas shells for MSU Denver classes are programmed to open on the Saturday before classes begin. Starting from this date, students can view and interact with published content.
As the instructor, you can view and change this date in the Settings menu of each course. In the Course Details tab of the Settings menu, scroll down to the Course Start Date. Click the calendar icon to the right of the date to change it. You can also uncheck the checkbox next to “Restrict students from viewing course before course start date” if you would like students to be able to view, but not interact, with published content. This can be useful if you would like students to be able to view things like Announcements or the Syllabus early.
