How do I set my course folder to require manually publishing content?

This guide will show you how to set up your course Media Library folder such that new content will not automatically be available. Content uploaded to the folder will need to be manually published before becoming accessible to viewers.

Enter the settings for your course folder

In the Media Library section of your course, select the gear icon in the upper right hand corner to enter the settings for the folder.

1. Select "Settings" in the left hand menu to access further settings for your course folder.

2. Scroll down to the "Availability" settings and select "never (unless set on the session)". This will make content in the folder unavailable until it is manually published by a creator.

Verify content is not available to viewers and publish content when desired

Content in the course folder should now show that it is not available to viewers. When you move your cursor over the video, you will now see an option to "Publish" the content. When this button is selected the content will become available to viewers. This process can be repeated in other folders if desired.
