ULTRA: Learning modules

A learning module is a container for organized collections of content. Modules let you navigate from one content item to the next without distractions or extra clicks. A learning module keeps you focused on the lesson or concept you're learning. If your course uses a textbook, your instructor may use modules to group content to match the pace of these materials.

Your instructor may allow you to explore the content in a learning module in any order. Alternatively, the instructor can require you to open and complete content before you move to the next item. A content sequence can help you understand concepts before moving on to further lessons.

ULTRA: Work in a learning module

A learning module appears similar to a folder on the Course Content page. Select the title or arrow to open the module and view content.

In addition to content items, files, and tests, your instructor can add activities and tools that promote interactive learning and collaboration.

For example, you may see assignments or group projects in the module. You may also notice collaboration tools such as discussions where you can brainstorm and share your ideas about the topics presented.

You can view all visible content within the module, including due dates. You can open and access the content in any order. If your instructor requires a content sequence, a message appears to show you that you need to open and complete the content in order, along with other conditions you set.

After you open a content item, navigate through the module using arrows at the top left and top right of the browser window. You can quickly proceed to the next piece of content to continue learning.

When you're required to access the content in order, a lock appears next to the arrow.

You can exit the module without completing all content. When you return to the course page, icons appear next to the module content. The icons show which content is complete, in process, and not started, so you can pick up where you left off.

A green circle with a checkmark means that content is complete. A partially filled green circle means the content is in process. A lock icon means the content hasn't been started.

If the module contains folders, you'll navigate through content in folders the same way as any other content in the module. If a content sequence is required, you'll need to access and complete content within the folder before moving on to the next content item within the module.
