If learners are required to complete a course within a certain time frame, you can set this when creating or editing the course:
- On the SETTINGS tab, scroll down to the section called Group access settings, then:
- To set a time limit for all users in your learning space: Indicate the number of days or weeks each learner has to complete the course in the Time limit field.
- To set a time limit for a selection of users: Ensure you have created the necessary groups and added them as groups with specific permissions, then indicate the number of days or weeks members of the selected groups have to complete the course in the Time limit field.
- Click Save Changes.
Course time limits begin at midnight following a learner's enrollment into the course. Learners receive reminder emails one week and again one day before their course time limit is reached.
Time limit conditions
If a time limit is set for all learning space users and a different time limit is set for members of certain groups, the group level time limits override the learning space level time limit.
For learners who are in multiple groups with conflicting time limits, the earliest completion date applies.
Exempting learners from time limits
If you want to set a time limit for all learners in your learning space except a selection of learners, create a group containing the applicable learners, add the group as a group with specific permissions and leave the time limit field blank.
The time limit you set for all users in your learning space will not apply to members of the group.
