Hide a Moodle Course from Student View

There may be cases where you'd like to hide your Moodle course from student view. For example, if you have combined multiple sections of a course, you may want to hide the sections you are not using so students won’t get confused. There are also times at the end of the semester where you’d want to hide the course in order to protect any copyrighted material.
