Schedule availability of course content

You can restrict when students can see many items in Blackboard, including modules, folders, items, assignments, and test. You can have Blackboard automatically make content available for students to see on a particular date and time. You can also specify when content "disappears" from your students' view. You set the start date and end date independently. This allows you to change only one of the options or both.

1. Hover your mouse over the item in your course. Click the down arrow that appears to the right of the item name and click Edit.

This "item" could be a folder, a test, a document, etc.
