Course and Learning Path Prerequisites

When Prerequisites have been set for a Course or a Learning Path, Learners will be required to complete the pre set Prerequisite Courses and Learning Paths before they begin the Course or Learning Path they are attempting to take.  

Use this feature to verify that the user has the proper knowledge necessary to understand the material given in the Course or Learning Path they are about to take.  Or use this feature to simply guide Learners down a specific predetermined path.

Note:  If a Prerequisite has been added to a Course or Learning Path after a Learner has started it, the Learner will no longer be able to progress through the Course or Learning Path without first completing any Prerequisites they have not yet completed. 

Courses With Prerequisites in a Learning Path 

If a Course has a Prerequisite and is in a Learning Path, the prerequisites of the Course will be required before the Learner can start the Course in the Learning Path. 

User Experience

Learners will find Courses and Learning Paths with a prerequisite(s) the same way they will find a Course or Learning Path without Prerequisites.  They can either be directly assigned to the Learner or listed in the Course Library.

When the Learner selects a Course or Learning Path with a prerequisite(s), they will not be able to start the Course or Learning Path unless they have completed the prerequisite(s).  

Reporting

Course/ Learning Path Quick Reports and Reporting Engine objects will provide if a Course or Learning Path has prerequisites set.  For further details, see the prerequisite area "Settings" tab in the Course or Learning Path.
