Military folks deployed; unplanned surgeries ahead; hurricanes are expected....all sorts of real world problems on the horizon calling for individuals to have access to modules prior to the rest of the class. Why can't modules (including pages and files) and not just assignments, discussions and quizzes be date restricted for individual student circumstances and not all or nothing? How many years and how many votes before this is realized?
so you just skip this?
We have courses that start on a monthly basis and need to run these cohorts as sections in one canvas course because of storage and maintenance primarily. Being able to set timed release per section would be a perfect solution for us.
I was going to request this exact same thing, though for a different reason. I would like to make a "module" of pages that the students in my course create and edit themselves--sort of like using the Pages as wikis. But I teach two sections of a course that are integrated into one course shell; I don't want students in one section to be able to see or edit the Pages of students in the other section. I want everyone to be able to navigate to the module and then only see the Pages of students in their section. So, the module might have a total of 40 pages in it, but students in each section would only see the 20 pages created and edited by the students in their section.
I would be very interested to know just how many ideas there are on a similar theme. It does seem a very popular choice:
Modules personalised for individuals, groups or sections
For example here is one I submitted https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/5319-hiding-and-viewing-modules-for-individual-sections?sr=sea... (362 votes) and then https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/10343?sr=search&searchId=ebb1d5ff-e602-4ee4-9584-2932c1d15fbb&... (14) and https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/2650?sr=search&searchId=ed96e95e-a4df-487d-872a-826fd33da3fe&s... (7)
So by all accounts, over 1000 votes....!
Each student is unique and instruction and assignments must be modified to differentiate for students and group work. My vote is yes.
I have a training course that the only way I could figure out how to make 'Choose your own adventure' was to create a starting course with self-enroll links to sub-course that have a self-enroll link to the final wrap-up that all the different branches require. So my poor folks have now got 3 or more different courses to figure out, instead of one that I can separate and hide modules for things they don't want/need/care about. Mastery Paths are definitely overly complicated and only work - as far as I can tell - if you have a two-question 'sorting hat' quiz. That's not going to help with my 7 variations on the theme.Pleeeeeeeeaaaassssseeee can we have this functionality, Canvas?
I'm saddened to see that this idea has been pending for 5 years and now has over 700 up votes, with a few other similar ideas out there making it over 1000 votes, and no action by the developers at Instructure. CanvasCon Online 2020, @canvassupport10 when can this happen?? It's a biggy without a workaround.
Students often come into our courses with a wide range of background skills. It would be useful to have a way to make advanced content available only to some students who are not challenged enough by the existing content or who are otherwise interested in learning those skills, without overwhelming students who are not ready for that advanced material.
Please, please, please let modules be individualized. I teach special education and I have 18 different groups of students I teach each day. I would have to make 18 different courses. If modules could be assigned out differently, I could use 3 courses (Writing, Reading, and Math). Only 3 courses for me to access instead of 18.

Seen and upvoted!
It's August 2020 and I, like the other 999 commenters, really need this option. Please consider developing it!
Definitely agree with this!
Face it, it has been 5 years and they haven't bothered adding this simple functionality. It is not happening.
So we have to use the embarrassing 'workarounds' now.
HIGHLY useful, particularly during remote learning
With the growing need for remote learning due to the pandemic, I would die for the option to just have some modules available for certain kids. My gosh this would be so helpful.
I would like to be able to make modules visible to only some students. As it is, when I have a module that only applies to some students, they get confused about who is supposed to complete the items in the module, even when I assign graded items to only some students.
I agree that it would be wonderful to make a module viewable to only one section or group.
