9. Lesson Settings
You can set how this lesson actually works for students with the options listed below.
Enable Free Preview If you enable this options for a Lesson, visitors to your Course Sales Page can preview or see this lesson without needing to signup.
Set as Draft
While you are working on a new lesson and you don't want your students to see this lesson, you can set it to draft. Unset it and they will be available to students straightaway.
Set as CompulsoryIf you would like your students to complete a lesson before they can actually continue to next lesson(s), you can set a lesson as Compulsory. Especially if the contents in the lesson are the basics of the rest of the lessons.
This can also be used along with Quizzes. i.e., if a compulsory lesson has a graded Quiz, it will not allow students to proceed to rest of course without successfully clearing the graded quiz lesson that has been set as compulsory.
