Add Restrictions to Content Topics

You can restrict content modules, sub-modules, and content items to students based on a variety of characteristics. For example, you can allow content to be visible only to members of a certain group, only to students who obtained a certain score on an activity, or only to students who have viewed another content item. You can also layer conditions, indicating that a student must satisfy all of the restrictive conditions in order to view the content or that a student can view the content if they have satisfied any of the conditions you list.

This feature is most often used to allow groups of students to view content specifically tailored to their needs.
