Module Prerequisites - Student

Prerequisites are rules an instructor has applied to items within a module requiring various other actions to complete for specific items. You can see when these are applied looking to the right of a module title or to the right of an item within a module that has a prerequisite applied. 

Complete all items – All items with prerequisites will need to be completed before another module will become accessible, the item in question will have a hollowed dot to the right of it as well as a rule under the title 

example of Complete all Items within Module title 

Complete One item – One item in this module will need to be completed, the item in question will have a hollowed dot to the right of it as well as a rule under the title 

example of Complete one Item within Module title 

Lock Until – the items within the module will not be accessible until a certain date. In the bottom right of that module you can see when that date is or when you attempt to access one of those items.

Sequential Lock – Items within the module will need to be accessed and completed in order they appear within the module. Items ahead of the current progression will appear greyed out.

Items within a module with prerequisites are listed with a hollow dot to the right of the title and the rule shown beneath the title as well. When highlighting the dot you can see what exactly is required.

If it seems like you have done all requirements listed and still cannot access a module or item contact your instructor to see if there was a submission that did not go through. If issues still persist submit a ticket to CITE.
