Q. I am a leader of a Blackboard organization and I have enrolled persons who are full-time faculty, part-time faculty and graduate students. I have set up groups so that I can send targeted e-mail messages. Now I want to post content but somehow limit access to the content based upon group membership — can I do this?
A. It is possible to limit access to content based on group membership using an adaptive release rule. Here’s how:
- From the control panel, post a content item in any content area.
- Select Manage next to the item.
- Select Adaptive Release.
- On the Adaptive Release page under Membership, select the group(s) you want to give access to.
- Scroll down and click Submit.
Now the content will appear for the group(s) you selected, but others will not see it.
