How do I add prerequisites to a module?


When you set up prerequisite modules, students must complete a module before moving to the next module. Please note that 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.

Note: You can only add prerequisites if you have added at least one module.



Open Modules



Add Prerequisite



To add additional prerequisites, click the Add Prerequisite link. If you want to ensure students complete modules in order, you should add prerequisites for all modules that come before this module.

To remove a prerequisite, click the Remove icon.

Click the Update Module button.

View Module



View your prerequisite(s) in the module header.
