What is a Module?

  • A module is a complete, automated instructional resource (no instructor intervention required).
  • Each module is based on one identified learning outcome and contains: content presentation, practice with feedback, and assessment of learning.
  • Each module can be completed in one sitting (approximately 20-30 minutes).
  • Content presentation may be text, graphics, video, interactive media or a combination as appropriate.
  • Practice/Assessment may be “traditional” (i.e., true/false or multiple choice) or “non-traditional” (e.g., simulation/authentic assessment) as appropriate.
