How do I control site access (e.g., unpublish a published site)?
Go to Site Info.
Select the Site Info tool from the Tool Menu of your site.
Click Manage Access.
Select your Site Status (i.e published or unpublished).
Published sites are available to all site participants and appear in their site tabs and lists.
To unpublish a published site, select Leave as Draft and at the bottom of the view, click Update.
If the site is left as draft, or unpublished, only instructors/site owners may access it and students will not see the site in their list of sites. Throughout the site, instructors are presented with an Unpublished Site note and can use the Publish Now button to quickly publish a site, without going through Site Info.
