The course framework is the guide in creating modules. Audience analysis is also vital in the creation of the module. Another important consideration is the creation of learning objectives. This will help students navigate the modules. Third consideration is module consistency, not just in face value, as well as the verbal and non verbal cues.
Creating a module is very important. This allows organization of course content, which would of course, benefit the students. Modules can be divided into weeks, one can also divide it by course content. Learning tools like videos, webpages, articles and other links can be put in the module to further help learning. Using modules often go hand in hand with a given LMS of the institution. Whatever form, module creation is a cyclical process of improving instruction.
Creating and testing a module requires looking into important details, like the font size and style which affects readability, content enhanced with multimodal learning materials, as well as consistency in length across all modules. Language used should be consistent, clear and concise. Scaffolding is very important as it provides sufficient support to promote learning.
Creating a content database can be helpful as it can compile all learning tools in one storage. It will be always easily accessible, and can be shared to other instructors as well.
Overall, module writing is an organized process, and there are concrete and time tested principles in ensuring that what we create can benefit students.
I have created modules before, but these were printed. I believe that the content of this current module can guide me in creating one that is suited to the new normal.
