Adaptive Release

Adaptive release of content provides controls to release content to users based on a set of rules created by the instructor. The rules may be related to availability, date and time, individual usernames, membership in course groups, review status of another item in the course, and Grade Center items such as scores, attempts, and calculated columns.

If adaptive release is turned on by an administrator, it is available to all instructors to use within their courses.

If adaptive release is turned off, all data is saved. Content will be available based on availability and date. Adaptive release rules will be ignored. If adaptive release is made available again, all rules associated with items will appear and be unchanged.
