    • Start Date – The date and time learners will gain access to the module.
    • Due Date – The date and time learners should complete the module activities.
    • End Date – The date and time learners will no longer be able to access the module.

      PLEASE NOTE:  These dates apply only to the content and links in the module or sub-module.  Learners are able to access Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, and Surveys from the Course Tools menu, so it is important to establish start, due, and end dates on each activity if they should be restricted.
