2) Be sure that you hide anything that you don’t want students to see yet. You can either do this at the folder level (use the settings wheel and choose “Availability”) or the individual item level (use the settings wheel and choose "unpublish"). You can also hide items as your create them using the green visibility icon in Advanced options.
3) Anything you create goes into your “Materials” list. If you don’t want students to see certain categories and/or only want them to see items that you put into course folders, click “hide” for the different categories in the Materials list. This also makes your course page look a bit cleaner.
If you want to see what kids can see, you can either do this by clicking on a student in the Members area and choosing "Preview" course from the settings wheel or you can choose "View Course As" under the "Course Options" pull-down underneath the course picture.
