You can restrict access to the workspace to logged in users (Aalto/Haka) only. How: link.

You can restrict access to a section (except to the front page) or to a resource (e.g. Folder).

Open the section → Editing mode on → Edit  → Edit section name and summary → Restrict access → Add restriction → Choose to restrict either by:

  • Activity completion (before you can use this, it must be activated. Link
  • Date
  • Grade
  • Group (You must have groups created before you can use this)
  • Grouping (You must have groups and groupings created before you can use this)
  • Role (With Student-role, you can restrict access to your course students only)
  • User Profile (e.g. restrict with email containing @aalto.fi)
  • Restriction set (add a set of nested restrictions to apply complex logic, e.g. group + date

How to limit resource visibility to course members only

  • Open the resource → Edit settings → Restrict access → Add restriction → Role → Student
