    What is the Session Time-Out Warning?

    Whether you are typing a long assignment submission in the text editor, or posting a detailed discussion forum post, you’ll no longer be the victim of lost work and will no longer be logged out of Isidore without warning. A new security feature has been installed that will inform users before their session times out so they won't lose any work they’ve composed in Isidore.

    Publishing and Unpublishing Sites

    When you're ready for students to see your site, you can make it available (publish it) from the Site Info tool. When you publish your site, it appears as a new tab in each student's workspace.  If you do not want your students to see your site, you can make it unavailable (unpublish it) from the Site Info tool.  When you unpublish your site, students will not see a tab for your site in their workspace.
