You can make folders temporarily unavailable by selecting NO for Permit Users to View Content Item. This will hide the folder and all content added later to it from students. To make it available later, use the Edit function to change the permission to YES. In addition, you can track views and set availability dates for a future time frame. To make content available as of a certain date but keep it availabe after that, fill out the Display After field but NOT the Display Until field.
