Release Conditions

Release Conditions allow you to monitor when participants access course materials, complete activities, enroll in the course, or receive a specified grade. It is also possible to use release conditions to monitor a subset of the classlist, for example a graduate section, a specified "group" of students, or only people enrolled as students or as TA's.

To add restrictions to an Intelligent Agent, make sure you are in the Edit Agent field. Edit Agent is the default window when you create a new Intelligent Agent, or edit an existing one.
