Removing Prerequisites

Removing prerequisites will allow students to move through a unit in any order they choose, and introduces a high degree of flexibility. This may be suitable for a class where students are moving at their own pace, rather than moving through the material simultaneously.

1. Follow steps 1-2 above

2. Under the "Prerequisites" heading, you will see which unit must be completed before your students can move on. Click on the grey "X" to the right of that prerequisite and update your module.
