When you set a module prerequisite, the module is locked until a student completes the required items. However, unless completion requirements are set for prior modules, students will still be able to access upcoming modules.
When selecting a prerequisite module, you can only choose from previous modules. You may need to reorder modules to correct prerequisite availability.
Note: You can only add prerequisites if you have added at least one module.
