Overriding Term Availability Settings

Filed in LMS by on April 25, 2018

If you are getting an error message that indicates you cannot set an assignment due date because it is outside the official term dates, there is a way to easily over-ride this. For courses that start/end on a schedule outside of the official academic calendar (e.g. WPI Online courses), you can go into the course Settings, enter in the start/end dates, and check off the box immediately below this section next to users can only participate between these dates. Note that text below that box that indicates this will override the term availability dates. Checking off this box will then allow you to set your own dates for the course and any due dates for assessment activities.

If you want students to have access to the course after it has officially ended, then simply leave the end-date blank but be sure to check off that box.
