Restricting page access

Jump to solution

Is it possible to allow an instructor to limit access to a Page within a module, in the same way we can limit access to a file. In particular to only allow the page to be viewed after a certain date. In can manually publish a page on a given date, but I would like the page to be visible as part of the module but only accessible after a certain time.

It might also be useful to restrict based on pre requisites at the page as well as the module level.

Hi @RickAdcock 

No, this is not possible.

You could set the module to require students to complete the module contents in order, or you can set the module to require that students complete an item like an assignment or quiz before accessing the page, but the only restrictions you can place on a page are to publish/un-publish.

I did find a couple of ideas in the Ideas Conversations area of this community that you might want to review and comment on and support if appropriate.

I did not find a date restriction idea for pages, but there are way too many pages for me to search right now.

The work-around I figured out was to use a non-graded assignment  with no submission type as though it were a page. That allows you to assign the page to a specific section, and build modules only accessible by a particular section.

@sholmes370 -

I am interested in what your complete technique is for this work around.  Are  you making the assignment act like a module with links to all the content you would normally put in a module?

Thanks

Not quite. To restrict an entire module, you have to make sure everything you add to the module is restricted, so it isn't a perfect solution. For my use, everything I add to a module is typically a page or an assignment. Rather than using a traditional page where I only want to share text, or an embedded video for example, I use a non-graded assignment with no submission type. If students have access to the Modules page, it still shows up... but then I typically hide the module and page navigation options from students in my courses.
