How Do I Create a New Lesson?

Lessons are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or whatever organizational structure works for your course. With Lessons, you are essentially creating a linear flow of what you would like your students to do. Once you create Lessons, you can add content items, set prerequisites, and add requirements.

Add Lesson Prerequisites

If you have added at least one Lesson to your course, you can require a prerequisite Lesson. A prerequisite Lesson means students must complete the added Lessons before they can view the new Lesson. To add a Lesson prerequisite, click the Add Prerequisite link.
