The second section is the course settings, and perhaps the most important section while creating a course because in this section we controll all the course settings.
There are lots of settings present here and more settings are added depending upone the additional addons present in the website.
Following are some settings of the course:
=> Course Duration and duration parameter: Entering a value of 9999 or above shows “unlimited access” as time duration for course, otherwise it will show the time set by you in the course.
=> Set a prerequisite Course: Set a pre required course for the course. The course selected here, needs to be submitted and evaluated in order to get started with this course.
=> Previous Units/Quiz must be Complete before next unit/quiz access: As the name suggests if you enable this setting then the student will have to first complete the previous unti/quiz to move to the next unit/quiz.
=> Full units in Curriculum: This setting will allow users to see the full unit content from the course curriculum. Even the non logged in users will be able to see this content, therefore its recommended for only offline free courses.
