All About: Release Conditions
Release conditions are a way to give you more control over the learning path or who is able to see particular content in your course shell. If you attach a release condition to an item, students cannot see that item until they meet the associated condition. A number of tools in D2L Brightspace have the ability to use release conditions.
- You can set a release condition on an assignment so that it is not available to students until they have viewed that week's PowerPoint notes.
- You have split the class into groups that will need to access different versions of an assignment, you can limit access to each assignment and grade item to only the relevant group.
If you attach multiple conditions to an item, you need to set whether students are required to meet either ANY or ALL conditions before they can access that content.
Quite a few tools in D2L Brightspace can take advantage of release conditions, including:
- Intelligent Agents
Once a user meets a release condition, the condition is cleared for that user, and can’t be reset.
