Students Cannot See Content Uploaded into Moodle

Make certain the eye to the right of the module is open AND the eye for the file is open, too.

The content and the closed eye may be shaded out when you open the eye to the module.  That’s OK.  Click on the closed eye for the content anyway.  The content will become available and the additional functions for the item will become active.   Hide and Unhide Content Uploaded into Moodle

Best practices for your Course Documents folder

To help students locate the core course documents for courses using Moodle, the Main Menu area has a “Course Documents” folder which should contain the critical documents distributed the first day of class (syllabus, rubric, class schedule, etc.)

Documents distributed throughout the semester should be added to folders in the corresponding weekly or topic module.

This set-up has proven to minimize student anxiety since the Main Menu is always available.
