At the beginning of the quarter, you must manually activate your course site for students to be able to access it, otherwise it will not be displayed in their list of courses in D2L at all. All courses are initially set to "inactive" status so that students cannot access the course site before you have finished setting it up.
The activation settings for your course site are located on a page called "Course Offering Information." There are links to this page in two different places in D2L: the list of courses on your D2L home page and through the course site's Edit Course > Course Administration link, which is listed in the navigation bar.
NOTE: There are buttons near the top-left side of the Course Administration page that let you sort the links on it by name or by category; if your Course Administration page is sorted by category, the Course Offering Information link will appear in the Site Setup section.
