Are you considering adding a prerequisite Module to your course?


When you setup prerequisite modules, students must complete a module before moving to the next module. This is a great way to make sure your students are completing their course work in the manner intended. The following video will show you how to add, and remove prerequisite Modules. Enjoy!
Please note:
  • You cannot prevent a student from accessing an upcoming module unless prerequisites have been set for the prior modules.
  • For each module, you can only set prerequisite modules that come before a specific module.
  • You may need to reorder modules to create correct prerequisite availability.
  • You can also require students to complete requirements within a module.

  • You can only add prerequisites if you have added at least one module
