A learning module is a sequenced collection of subject-related materials designed to teach a topic or skill. Learning modules are the building blocks of hybrid and online courses and usually contain one week’s worth of work for students to complete.

Online learning modules usually contain:

  • learning objectives
  • directions for use
  • ways to help students understand or learn (i.e. learning materials)
  • ways to help students practice or apply (i.e. learning activities)
  • ways to ascertain whether students have understood or learned the material (i.e. assessments)
