How do I require students to move through each Module item in order?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

When adding module requirements, you can specify that students must move through module items in order. This option means that students must complete one module item before they can progress to the next item in the module.

Note: You can only allow students to move through a module if you have added module requirements.
