How do I set my Topic sections to become visible to students by date?

2. Turn editing on.
8. Click on Date.
The options that appear on this pop-up menu will differ depending upon which settings you have previously configured for your course.

Date, Grade, User profile and Restriction set are always available.
Each of these options allow you to set a different type of restriction.
10. Choose From or Until.
12. The restriction now displays below the Topic header.
13. Students will see the Topic header and the date it will become available to view.
14. To hide the Topic section completely, follow these steps.
14.4. Click on the EYE next to the date restriction.
You have now learned how to use the Restrict access setting for a Topic section, so that you can have the Topic section open by a specified date and time. Keep in mind that you can also use restrict access settings for any type of resource or activity you add to your course main page.
