Private courses can be of two types: enabled and disabled. You can teach learners on the enabled private courses, this type of courses is you need to pay, more about our subscription plans — http://welcome.stepik.org/en/pricing.
You can also invite learners to the private disabled course, however, they will only have access to the course syllabus, but the content will still be unavailable. A private disabled course can be useful for teachers who want to fill the course up with content, before making it publicly available.
To make your private course enabled you can:
- Make it public and then enabled
- Subscribe to any plan and keep the course private, while making the content available to your learners.
All created courses are open by the default.
To change course status (public/private) go to the Permissions page.
