After the term has ended, it is good practice to ensure course data is downloaded and to ensure the course is unavailable to students for record-keeping and professional integrity.
Once usage of the course has ended for the semester, it is advised teaching staff hide the course from students.
Doing so removes clutter on the students’ dashboard and prevents them from seeing any changes teaching staff may make for the course afterward.

What if I don't hide course at the end of semester?
If you do not wish to hide courses from students once they are finished, make sure that the end date of the course is set. That way courses that have finished will be only visible in "Past" section on students' Dashboard. This would prevent students to having the course in their "In Progress" view.
