You can now add sequencing to the modules within your courses through the user interface. Previously, you had to load a SCORM package to do this or get us to help you to do so.

Prerequisites page

We’ve added a new ‘Prerequisites’ page for items in courses.

Prerequisites page

From the page, you can indicate which other items in the course need to be completed before the current item can be accessed. One or more items can be selected.

You can also indicate the amount of time that the learner must spend in the course (across all modules) before the current item can be accessed. This is useful for courses that mandate that the learner spends a certain number of hours in training before starting the final exam.

Auto-sequence a course

The most common scenario for sequencing in courses is to require the learner to complete the modules in the order that they appear. We’ve made it really easy to do this.

From the course summary page, use the ‘Auto-sequence’ action. This will make each item in the course a prerequisite for the next item.

Of course, you can edit an item and remove its prerequisite, if needed.

Learner experience

As a learner, items that have prerequisites will be disabled until the requirements are met. A tool tip with information about what needs to be completed before the item is available is shown. We also suggest making any such requirements clear in an item’s description, along with other pertinent information to set the learner’s expectations.

We hope you find these changes useful!
