CougarVIEW Instructor Guides: Why can't learners see the content?

Need help with something in CougarVIEW? Good news! We have a number of guides to show you how to use the many tools and resources in CougarVIEW. These guides cover topics like using the grade book, setting up quizzes, creating groups, and many more.

Why can't learners see the Content I posted?

  1. From the course homepage, select Content.


  1. Select the Content module/sub-module from the contents section. If learners can't see a content topic, select the topic's context menu and select Edit Properties In-place.



  1. Select Add dates and restrictions.


  1. Review the following:
    • Ensure that the start and end dates set on the Content Module / Topic are accurate.
      If there is a start or end date set on the Content module/topic that wasn’t intended, remove the dates filled in the Start Date and End Date fields so that they are blank.
    • Under Release Conditions, ensure that the release conditions set on the Content Module / Topic are accurate.
      If there are release conditions set that weren't intended, remove the release conditions by selecting the Delete icon.
      If the start date, end date, and release conditions are set accurately, and learners still can’t view the Content module/topic, then the reason the learners cannot view the Content is due to them not having met the release conditions to be able to view the Content.
