When multiple Lessons are assigned to a Course, prerequisites can be used to specify the order in which the Lessons must be completed. This can be useful if for example, a URL lesson contains important pre-training information for an Instructor-led Course, or if multiple e-learning modules must be completed in a specific order.
Step One: Find a Course. Navigate to ‘Course’ to view a list of all Courses in Learn
Navigate to ‘Course’ to view a list of all Courses in Learn. Filter the list using the search options (Free text, Availability and Category). Note: the free text search references Course Title, Code and description). Click a Course Title to open:
Step Two: Set the Lesson order
Select ‘Lesson’ from the Course Administration menu. This opens the Lesson List for the Course. Lessons will appear to the learner in the order listed here.

Step Three: Select the Lesson to which a pre-requisite will apply
A prerequisite can be configured for any Lesson assigned to the Course (with the exception of Lessons included in an Elective set).
In the below example, the second lesson is selected. This is the Lesson to which a prerequisite will apply – Lesson 1 must be completed first:
Step Four: Configure the Pre-requisite options
Click ‘New’ to add a new pre-requisite (or to edit existing pre-requisite settings). Select from the drop-down menu, the Lesson which should be a pre-requisite to selected Lesson. Select when the lesson will be available. The following options are available:
- The target lesson will be available immediately
- The target lesson will be available from a specific date
- The target lesson will be available after a defined period
Note: If choosing to defer the availability of the Lesson, a reason can be given which is displayed to the User when the pre-requisite is met.
Step Five: Save Changes
Click ‘Save’ to keep the changes. To return to the summary of Lesson assignments, click ‘Lesson’ in the Course administration menu. The second Lesson is now locked until the first is completed. The Course and Lessons will appear in ‘My Courses’ like this:
