Lesson Prerequisites: Frontend

Once prerequisites are set for either Courses or Lessons, students will need to complete the prerequisite before viewing the content for that Course or Lesson.

"You must first complete [Prerequisite] before viewing this Lesson."

If you assign a Prerequisite to a Course, this same message will display on the Course Page.

Lesson Prerequisites Limited to one Course?

When setting Lesson Prerequisites, you may select from ANY lesson in your LMS system. You are not limited to choosing Lessons that are already assigned to the ‘Lesson Course’ you’ve selected from the dropdown.

NOTE: Lesson Prerequisites do not automatically display on the Course Page. Be aware that if a Lesson has a Prerequisite from a different Course assigned to it, it seems you need to manually add this disclaimer to the Course page.

Example: If you’ve made three lessons from Course 1 require a lesson from Course 2 as a Prerequisite, students will likely be annoyed to discover this only after purchasing Course 1. So, you’d want to add marketing content to make this prerequisite clear on Course 1’s page.
