Restrict Content to One Section in a Combined Course

By default all content is visible to all enrolled users in the course. As a reminder, you must create a module before you can add content topics.

The steps below will set restrictions on a content topic, making the content visible only to a specific section in a combined course. These steps assume you have already created content within a module in our course.

  1. On the nav bar in your course, click Content.

  2. Add a ModuleWithin the Table of Contents on the left side of the page, click the module title containing the content for which you want to add restrictions. In this example, Week 1 Module is selected.

  3. Click the context menu to the right of the content topic title, then select Edit Properties In-place.

  8. Click Create to save your choices and close the pop-up window.
  9. These steps can be repeated to select different condition types if desired. If multiple conditions are used, we recommend selecting that students must meet all conditions in order to see the content. Example: You can release the content only to users in section 010, who have also submitted their Paper #1.
  10. The release condition(s) you create will display within the module properties. Click Update to apply the restrictions.
