Adaptive Release

Instructors can create rules based on a date, time, user group or attempts or scores in a quiz to manage the release of content. When Adaptive Release rules have been created for an item, only those users who meet the criteria of the rule will be able to see that item.

Once you’ve created an Adaptive Release rule, you can edit or delete it, or copy it, rename it and use it as the basis of a new rule.

The following criteria can be applied to content items in your module;
• Date – Content is released after a certain date or between particular dates.
• Membership – Content is released to specific individuals or groups.
• Grade – Content is released to students based on a particular grade for an assessment task.
• Review Status – Content is released after a related item has been marked as ‘Reviewed ‘ by a student.

Adaptive Release rules have two different levels of complexity – Basic and Advanced.
