Szymon Machajewski – Using Adaptive Release to Selectively Release Content in Blackboard

Szymon Machajewski is an Adjunct Professor in the Computer Applications Department at GRCC.

Providing Selective Release of Content in Blackboard

Instructional content in a Blackboard course can be sometimes overwhelming to students.  Especially in an online course students tend to browse content available to them at the beginning of the class.

If all course content is displayed immediately, this may discourage the student or make it difficult to find the specific entry point for the week.

This is where adaptive release, a feature of the Blackboard Learn system, introduces clarity to the course organization and displays the required amount of content for the learning stage.  It promotes an effective learning environment and helps to maintain a common class pace.

Adaptive release makes course content visible to the student based on criteria selected by the instructor.  The criteria can be as simple as a checkbox with a “Mark Reviewed” label, a gradebook attempt entry, a date, or group membership.
