How do I use Restrict access to hide a Section on my course main page?
You will learn how to use Restrict access, so that you can hide a Topic (or Week) section on your course main page from all of your students, but allow access to one individual, like a TA or GA. This is useful for sharing documents or other files with your GA or TA without the students in the course having any idea that they documents or files are even there.
Follow these steps to restrict access to a course main page Section.
1. Enter course in TITANium.
