Modules can help make the organization and flow of your course more clear and predictable for your students. At the beginning of each module, you should include an introduction or overview to help students know the purpose of the module and what to do. This can also include a list of the module learning objectives, activities, assignments, assessments, and materials, as well as how they align with the learning objectives.
- In addition to creating a module introduction or overview page, consider creating a video that introduces the module and explains what to do.
- A module introduction page might have a structure like this:
- Optionally an image or video that graphically relates to the module topic
- Introductory text and/or video explaining the purpose of the module and the activities
- A list of the module learning objectives, with parentheses at the end indicating how they align with the course intended outcomes
- A list of the materials in the module with parentheses at the end indicating how they align with the module learning objectives
- A list of the activities, assessments, and assignments in the module with parentheses indicating alignment with module learning objectives, and optionally information about due dates and points, as well.
