How do I add requirements to a Module?

You can add requirements for a Module that students must meet before they can move to a following Module. You can also set up prerequisite modules.

If you have multiple iterations of an module item, you can set different requirements for each item.

Note: You will need to add content items before you can specify requirements for the module.
