How to only show assigned content in a course

For an already created course

To only show activities assigned to your students instead of all available content in an already existing course, you have to edit the course. You can do so from multiple locations, including: 

Dashboard view

Hover over the course card you want to edit and click on the pencil icon.

The course window will open and you will be able to change the course mode from the Show/Hide ‘All Content’ field. Choose Show all content if you want your students to see all activities (both assigned and non-assigned by you); otherwise, choose Only show assigned content to allow your students to see only the activities in your teacher-created assignments. 

Click on Create to save your edits.

Courses view

Hover over the course name you want to edit and click on the pencil icon .

The course window will open and you will be able to change the course mode from the Show/Hide ‘All Content’ field. Choose Show all content if you want your students to see all activities (both assigned and non-assigned by you); otherwise, choose Only show assigned content to allow your students to see only the activities in your teacher-created assignments. 

Click on Create to save your edits.
