The Adaptive Release function in Blackboard releases course content based on rules. Canvas uses Prerequisites and Requirements to control availability of content and Modules.

Module settings

  • Lock Until - Releases a Module on a specified date
  • Requirements -  Students must complete a module before before moving to the next module.  For example, students must view all content in Module 1 before Module 2 will become available.
  • Prerequisites - Selected items must be completed moving to the next module. For example, students must receive an 80% or greater on the Module 1 quiz before Module 2 will become available

Tip Assignments and Quizzes in Canvas can only be released by date/time, user or section.
