Require completion of a Lessons page

From Sakai Help

Instructors can require the completion of one Lessons page or subpage before allowing students to move on to subsequent Lessons pages or subpages in the Lessons hierarchy. That is, instructors can require all of the required items on one page to be completed before students have access to subsequent Lesson pages or subpages.

See Require completion of a Lessons item for directions on requiring an item on a page to be completed.

See Require completion of a Lessons item for directions on conditionally releasing an item based on prerequisites.

If a student clicks the subpage link (or button) without completing all the required items on the page, nothing will happen. (Instructors can click on the subpage link and the subpage will be displayed.)

Note: that the subpage link (or button) now displays the text [Has Prerequisites] next to the item.

The Unit 1 Lessons page items must be completed before a student can access the Unit 2 Lessons page.

If a student clicks on the Unit 2 page in the Tool Menu without completing all of the Unit 1 Lessons page items, a message is displayed alerting the student that they cannot access the page until all of the Unit 1 items are completed. (Instructors can access both top-level Lessons pages.)
