What is alphanumeric ordering?
Alphanumeric ordering refers to a set of ordering rules for how data is displayed using symbols, numbers and letters in order both numerically and alphabetically. Put Simply, it makes symbols, numbers and letters appear in that specific order. This comes in very handy when data needs to be listed in a specific order, Example - Online Modules.
If modules need to be completed in a specific order, adding a number to the start of the module name is the simplest way to achieve this.
