Using an Approval module, you can prevent learners from continuing a course until a nominated user within your learning space has approved their progress.
Note: Users can be selected to perform approvals if their access level includes the permission to perform approvals.
Follow these steps:
- Complete the usual steps to create a course.
- Click Add Module in the section of the course where learners need to be approved before proceeding, then click Approval.
- Give the module a title and description.
- In the Approvers section, click User or Group Access Levels and select the specific user or group access level within your learning space to indicate who must approve the learner's progress for them to continue.
- Click Save.
The Approval module is added to the course.
Note: If a learner requests approval but doesn't have a nominated approver (for instance, the learner belongs to a group where no group members have a group access level that includes the permission to perform approvals), an email is sent to the learning space owner and the support email address, notifying them of the approval.
