What is a gatekeeper and how do I use it?
Gatekeeper tasks prevent the student from moving on in the course until the task is completed. If the student tries to open an assignment further down in the syllabus without completing the task, Echo will block access and point them back to the gatekeeper tasks.
To designate an activity as a gatekeeper, use the Advanced Activity Options section on the Settings tab of the Activity Editor.
STEP 1: Select an option for determining when the system will mark the activity complete.
STEP 2: Select the option to require that the "Student must complete before continuing to the next one."
