How are full, drip, and partial content access types different?

On this page, you will learn in detail about the different content access options.

What you'll need:

There are three ways you can provide registered students access to your course:

  1. Full access: With this option, students will have instant access to all modules and lectures. Any delay that had been set between lectures will be ignored.
  2. Drip content: With this option, students will progressively have access to modules and lectures, according to the delay you have defined.
  3. Partial access: With this option, students will only have access to a part of the course (i.e. to specific modules selected by the instructor).

Here is an example of how to configure a delay for courses and lectures:

We are going to configure a course to provide access to a new lecture every day.

When creating the lecture, you can specify how long to delay before it becomes available to the student. The delay is in days and begins after viewing the previous lecture (number 1 in the image).

When creating the first module, we set a delay of 0 days to its first lecture.
This way, the student will immediately have access to the first lecture as soon as they register for the course.
For every lecture that follows, we will set a delay of "1 day".
In this way, a new lecture will unlock for the student every day.

It's important to note that when providing drip access to a course, it's not possible to set an expiration delay. Expiration delays will only work for courses that provide full access.
