Moodle - Using Restrict Access

Tags PSU

Moodle's Restrict Access feature is used to limit access to an activity or resource by time or grade on a particular assignment. This popular feature is commonly used to automatically release resources to students at designated times, as opposed to manually releasing it.

Note: All Moodle resources and activities have the ability to utilize the selective release feature.
