Adaptive Release - Basics: Date

Adaptive Release gives instructors the opportunity to display specific content to individuals or groups in the class based on criteria set. Once the rule is created, each student has to meet the specific criteria before they are allowed to access the content.

Enable Edit Mode

First make sure that Edit Mode is ON.

Find Item Where You Wish to Use Adaptive Release

1. Click on that item’s Action Link button .
2. Then, choose Adaptive Release.

Limiting By Date

NOTE: While you are allowed to use an Adaptive Release Date rule, the suggested method is to instead use the Date/Time settings under the Edit menu for the item. Please do not set date availability within both areas--this can prevent the item from appearing at all.

1. For Display After, check the box then click the Calendar icon to select the date this item should appear. The date can also be typed into the field using the formula mm/dd/yyyy. After the date has been set for Display After, click the Clock icon to select the time the item should appear.

2. For Display Until, check the box then click the Calendar icon to select the date this item should become unavailable. A date can also be typed into the field using the formula mm/dd/yyyy. Once the date has been selected for Display Until, click the Clock icon to select the time the item should become unavailable.

3. Both options (Display After, Display Until) do not have to be used together. If you prefer, the Display After option can be used to open an item on a certain date and keep it visible for the remainder of the course. The same applies for the Display Until setting.
