There are two features in DOTS LMS that are certain to make the user experience more streamlined as well as providing administrators/course creators the ability to eliminate manual processing. These two features are Pre-requisites and Completion Actions. Pre-requisites in DOTS LMS are used the same way they are in any learning pathway. In DOTS LMS you may set pre-requisites for any course. In addition to courses you may also set pre-requisite competencies in DOTS. The learner is able to see a clear path of learning and the adminstrator/course creator is able to ensure that the instructional design is followed. You can establish pre-requisites at any time using one of the DOTS LMS course dashboards. Have a look at this image and you will note that pre-requisites and completion actions are tools listed in the Secondary menu on the right.
You will see below that you may add both course and competency pre-requisites.
The Completion Actions add even more flexibility by linking a course result to a next action in DOTS LMS. You can set the automated completion action to initiate an action based on both successful and unsuccessful completions. You may use as many completion actions as you wish to generate a learning pathway. The completion action is a tool that is in addition to the DOTS Course Plan feature.
These two built in feature of DOTS LMS provide so much scope for administrators and content creators to ensure both a great learning experience as well as an automated process flow that enhances productivity.
