Sometimes you need to keep an activity or resource hidden from students. The course may be available, but the activity or resource may not be complete, or may require revision, or you may wish to only make it available to students at a certain time.
This page presents step by step instructions for hiding an activity or resource from student view within an available course.
With the Moodle 3.3 release, there is now the option to keep the activity available but hidden from the students (Stealth Mode).
When a section is deleted with activities inside it, the activities will remain in a section called 'Orphaned activities'. Instructions for Stealth mode and Orphaned activities can be found in the Advanced Guide section below.
