How do I set up prerequisite modules?

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.
