Adaptive Release 

You can schedule when you want to release content to students using the adaptive release tool to enable a criteria(s) to be placed on the availability of the item or folder. Adaptive releases can be useful for preloading courses with material to be staggered in release throughout the module, or making material available in a more personalised way based on the groups students are in, or their achievements in tests.

There are two types of adaptive release:

  1. Adaptive Release - A simpler version of the tool, where one rule can be applied. This rule can have up to four criteria may be applied, but all of the selected criteria must be met to release the content
  2. Adaptive Release Advanced - A more complex version of the tool where unlimited rules and criteria may be applied, for more complicated or particular circumstances.

Adaptive Release (standard)

The different criteria that can be applied are:

  • Date - specify a time period
  • Membership - of a group
  • Grade - of a test or assessment
  • Review Status - of an Item
