Content that has been set to hide will appear ‘greyed out’ wherever it appears in a QMplus course area. Content can be set to show again by following the same method as above (where the option to show will be displayed instead). The visibility setting only applies to people enrolled on your course as Students or Viewers. Teachers and QMplus administrators will still be able to see content that has beenĀ set to hide.
