When you're creating a course using Create-A-Course, there may be times when you'd like to leave the course unpublished. There are some advantages of unpublished courses.
- Unpublished courses do not appear on the Course Catalog page, so your employees do not have access to see the course.
- You can still assign theses courses if they're unpublished. This can be helpful if you'd like to prevent your employees from self-registering into the course.
- It gives administrators the ability to work on a course before making it immediately available in your site.
To unpublish a course, go to Settings in your Create-A-Course. Under Publish Course select Unpublish.
