The “draft state” feature, those green/gray clouds you see next to every module and item in Canvas, is a great way to control what students see that is similar to the “Make the link available” radio buttons that were part of every content item in Blackboard. But, be careful. If an unpublished module contains published assignments or other content, the assignments/contents will NOT be accessible anywhere in the course. The status of the Module overrides the state of the individual module items. Keeping module items in an unpublished state until you are ready to publish the entire module may help you notice what is unavailable to students. Learn more about Draft State in Modules.
