How do I enable or disable review mode for a course?

Enabling Review Mode allows course reviewers to add feedback as Reviewer Notes to a course. You can designate a review period when you enable Review Mode.

To enable Review Mode from the Course Browser:

  1. Open the course browser.
  2. Locate the course you want to set a review period for and select it.
  3. Click the Actions button. From the menu, select Set Review.
  4. Set the review period and click OK.

To enable Review Mode for a course you are authoring:

  1. Click the Review tab.
  2. Click the Set Review button.
    Select the Start and End dates for your review period (A week is added by default.You can type in dates or choose dates from the calendar.)
  3. Click the Save button.
  4. The Set Review button appears depressed (selected).
  5. The Browse Courses list displays the course icon as a pushpin on a page to indicate it is in Review Mode. A green pushpin denotes an active review period. A blue pushpin denotes a course that is in review mode, but the review period has not yet started. A red pushpin denotes a course with an expired review period.
Note: All reviewers assigned to the course will receive an email notifying them that the Review has been enabled. If you are running multiple review periods with different reviewers at different milestones you will need to add/remove reviewers accordingly.
