How do you make content visible to only certain people?

Jump to solution

I am attempting to use Canvas to build some modules for co-curricular experiences, and to develop some professional development modules for faculty and staff as well as student workers. I've been searching for ways to make content visible to only certain people but have been having trouble figuring this out. I've found the the features that allow content to be shown only if they've completed certain modules but I'm hoping there's a way to further differentiate between who can see what content in the course (well, this is actually an organizational site, not bound by term). Any tips? Thank you!

 @cochranm ​, unfortunately this isn't possible right now in Canvas. You can differentiate between who gets access to/can take assignments, quizzes, and discussions, but you can't differentiate content in a course.

I did a quick search and found this feature idea that's similar to what you want - . My recommendation is to comment on why this feature would be useful/helpful for you and up vote it!

Well no wonder I can't figure it out! How do you differentiate between who can access discussions, quizzes, and assignments?

It's pretty easy to assign a specific assignment to individual students or an entire course section, but easy to miss if you don't know what you're looking for! See if this guide helps - How do I assign an Assignment to an individual student or course section?. Even though it says assignment, it works for Assignments, quizzes, and discussions.

Has there been any new updates with differentiating Content Pages by section over the last 3 years? Or do we have to MacGuyver it with a requirement workaround?

 @jayoder , as far as I'm aware, the only way to differentiate content pages would be by using a Mastery Path's Hack - Hacking Mastery Paths
