    Description

      It would be great if resources could be set to appear at a specified time and/or remain visible only until a specified time. This would be similar to the existing functionality making an activity only available in a certain time window. Currently, I have to post material non-visible, then remember to make it invisible manually at a certain time. Sometimes, I want to make something appear at a set time and might not be easily able to access the Moodle site (because I'm away from a computer or teaching another class).

      There are three main reasons this would be useful (to me, at least):

      1) material could be posted to a Moodle page before a course begins and made to appear automatically for a time window during which it will be relevant.

      2) resources could be visible only for a short and specified time. In some countries, this would help comply with fair use laws concerning copyrighted material (one of the conditions for fair use being limited distribution)

      3) material relevant to an assessment could be "up" only until the assessment occurs, etc.
