Publishing your Course or Project Site

Publishing your Course or Project Site:
By default Laulima courses (those based on a CRN or course reference number) and Project sites (those that are Laulima sites that do not have 'official registration') are not accessible to students or site members. Course sites are automatically published about a week before the semester begins and are automatically unpublished about a week before the follow semester.

If your course was not assigned until after the first week of the semester and remains unpublished, you as the instructor or owner of the site needs to "publish" in order for students to enter the course. To do so:

1. Log into Laulima (, select a course or project site, then click on the Site Info link in the Course Menu


2. Using the Menu bar select the link for "Manage Access "


3. Select the checkbox next to "Publish site" and click "Update" (your site should now be accessible to students or those with access status in project sites)


For collaborative (project) sites only, the "Manage Access" page has another option which allows you to display your site in a public site list. If you select the option "Display in public site list", this will add your project site to the list of joinable sites which can be accessed in a users "My Workspace" tab.

Course and development sites do not have this option. If you check the option "Can be joined by anyone with authorization to login", your course or development site will automatically appear on the joinable sites list.
