How Do I Set Up Prerequisites for a Lesson?

When you set up prerequisite Lessons, Students must complete a Lesson before moving to the next Lesson. Please note that you cannot prevent a Student from accessing an upcoming Lesson unless prerequisites have been set for the prior Lessons.

For each Lesson, you can only set prerequisite Lessons that come before a specific Lesson. You may need to reorder Lessons to create correct prerequisite availability.

You can also require students to complete requirements within a Lesson.

Note: You can only add prerequisites if you have added at least one Lesson Item in that Lesson.
