This article explains the simple steps to configure course access.
Admins have the ability to carry out a number of actions on the access rules segment of a course:
1. Determine the dates that the course can be accessed – the course will not be removed from the learner's app, the learner will see a lock symbol on the content and will not be able to access this outside of the selected dates.
2. Mandatory course – Admins can set the course as a mandatory requirement with a due date. All users will be prompted to finish this course before the due date. If the due date is prior to the determined end date, the course will remain accessible. The dates can be changed at any time.
3. Course assignment – courses can be put on ‘universal access’ (where all users in the account have access to the course) or can be assigned to specific user groups that have been created within the account.
*Useful to note – all new/ imported courses will automatically be set to universal access.
4. Prerequisites – users must complete a course/ courses before they have access to this course. The user will see a small lock symbol on the content until they have completed the prerequisite material. They will also have a prompt of what is required for them to unlock this course. Anything in the right table will be a perquisite to the course that the Admin is configuring.
