Sample Scenario

James creates a new Module on Cash Management that covers a variety of topics related to using the cash register. He doesn't want his learners to be presented any information on processing returns until they master how to process a purchase. 

To set this up in OttoLearn, he makes the Processing a Purchase Topic a mastery prerequisite to the Processing a Return Topic. Learners will not be presented any information about returns until they master the prerequisite Topic.
