How to Add Requirements to a Course Module

Purpose: Canvas allows instructors to set requirements to course items within a module so students are forced to complete items and in the order set by the instructor. By setting item requirements, instructors can be assured students are reviewing course content and completing tasks and modules as needed. These settings are ideally used for self-paced online courses or to allow instructors more control on how students work through a course.

**It is recommended to set pages as “mark as done” so students are forced to perform an action before moving on to the next item. This assures instructors that students are acknowledging the requirement to review the content for the course rather than skipping through to avoid doing the work.**
