Course Modules



Course modules ​provide ​instructors ​and ​curriculum ​designers ​a ​way ​to batch ​and ​organize ​assignments ​and ​resources ​within ​a ​course. ​The instructor ​or ​curriculum ​designer ​can ​create ​a ​module ​folder, ​name ​it, ​and then ​add ​course related items which remain grouped together. These items include:

  • ​Discussion ​assignments ​
  • Submission ​assignments
  • Quiz assignments
  • Text Blocks
  • Resources ​

Instructors can also set prerequisites which prevent students from working on a module until they have completed another specified module.

When ​the ​module ​is ​complete, the ​instructor ​can ​publish ​the ​module, ​which ​includes ​all ​of ​its ​content, ​to specific ​students ​within ​the ​course, ​like ​they ​can ​with ​individual ​assignments, and ​delete ​or ​unpublish ​modules ​as ​needed. ​The ​feature ​also ​handles ​how the ​items ​within ​a ​module ​are ​organized, ​and ​when ​a ​module ​should ​move to ​the ​"Completed ​Assignments" ​section, ​for ​both ​instructors ​and ​students. Additional ​module ​features ​include:

  • Filtering ​and ​sorting ​students ​capability
  • Specifying ​why ​some ​students ​are ​unavailable ​to ​remove ​from ​a published ​module
  • Blocking ​instructors ​from ​giving ​a ​student ​the ​same ​assignment ​twice
  • Adding ​available ​date ​ranges ​for ​an ​entire ​module
