Lesson Prerequisites for Students

userEducatorTime5 minutes

Many of the lessons have prerequisite activities in Xello that students must complete before they can start the lesson. For example, in order to start the Learning Styles lesson, students must have completed the Learning Styles assessment and have at least 3 saved careers.

These prerequisites are used to personalise the lessons so that students can engage with and reflect on content that is meaningful to them. To help your students get even more value out of the prerequisites, check out the supplementary Lesson Prerequisites Resources also linked in the table below.

FYIFYI: Prerequisites can also be added to custom lessons. To learn more about custom lessons in Xello, start with About Custom Lessons.
