Add prerequisite to modules listed in reverse order

    I've noticed my students scrolling down long pages of modules to get to the latest assignment, and I've had to do this myself. It gets old. So I wanted to order the modules in reverse order with the latest module at the top.

    Unfortunately, re-ordering the modules with the latest on top means I can no longer add a prerequisite to the current module which points to the previous module listed below it. Prerequisites can only be added to a module if the prerequisite points to a module above it.

    I'd like to be able to add a prerequisite to a module so that it's dependent upon completion of a module beneath it, so I'm not stuck ordering modules from oldest to latest, top to bottom.

    I looked at creating a content page with links to the Modules in it rather than using the Modules link. Then I could create the prerequisites and hide the Modules navigation link. Is this what folks do as a workaround? I don't like the workaround very much because my students can't see the prerequisite relationship as easily as they can in Modules.

    If I'm not the only one who'd like to see greater freedom in setting Module prerequisites, please take this idea into consideration for a future version. Thanks very much for considering this.

    Best wishes,
