You can't start the ticking before opendate has passed.
Also when the interval is set the student is actaully shown the
problem, they are first shown a screen that says
The resources in "<folder name>" are open for a limited time. Once you
click the 'Show Resource' button below you have <length of interval>
to complete all resources "<folder name>".
They will need to clcik the 'Show Resource' button, and click a 'Start
Timer' button in a popup window to extra confirm they really really
want to start.
But you can if you want to use the IP acc and hidden resource to hide
the existance of the resource completely.
