Course Prerequisites

The Tutor LMS Prerequisites add-on lets you enforce the concept of leveling up in knowledge and skills by showing which courses students need to complete before enrolling in the following course. 

For example, a student wants to enroll in the course Advanced Python Coding but should have completed the Introduction to PHP course before doing so. 

So not only does the Course Prerequisite add-on help reach the right target audience but it also prevents any gap in knowledge and minimizes the occurrence of students asking for refunds.

Tutor LMS Prerequisites Add-on

To use the Course Prerequisite feature, you first have to enable the Prerequisites add-on. To do this, navigate to WP Admin > Tutor LMS Pro > Add-ons and click on the toggle under Prerequisites.

Once you’ve enabled the Prerequisites add-on, head over to WP Admin > Tutor LMS Pro > Courses. Here, you can click on any course to visit them in edit mode or create a new course. On the Course Builder Panel, you’ll see a new field called Course Prerequisites.

Click on this to bring up the dropdown and select the required course prerequisites from this list. Also, note that there are no limits to the number of prerequisite courses you can add. Lastly, don’t forget to Update/Publish the course once you’re done.
