It is sometimes necessary to restrict content to an individual or group of students, while not permitting access to all students in a class.  This can be done through Blackboard's Adaptive Release feature.

Adding an Adaptive Release content folder

  • Navigate to the the content area where you would like the restricted folder to appear
  • Select Build Content > Content Folder
  • Provide a name for the folder, ensure that Permit Users to View this Content is set to Yes, then click Submit
  • Click the gray menu arrow next to the folder's name and select Adaptive Release
  • In the Membership section, click the Browse button next to the Username box
  • Check the box next to the names of each student who should be permitted to view the content and click Submit
  • Click Submit again to commit the Adaptive Release settings changes
  • Content added to this folder will now only be visible to the selected students
  • No labels
