Modules

Modules are the building blocks of all the content in the LMS. You can arrange the modules in a course or use them separately. Using the navigation menu on the left side of the screen, you can locate the module you are interested in. The navigation menu is a tree menu. You select a parent entry on the menu and its child entries or modules will be listed on the right side of the screen. If you don’t want to go through the whole menu to find your module you can use the built in search function (the top item in the submenu), just click on the “Search” item then enter the keywords and click on the Search button. You will see a list of related modules.

 

When you select 'All / new' you can easily see which modules recently have been added. This page lists all modules sorted by publication date. This list can also be saved as a file, by clicking on the  icon at the bottom of the page. By selecting the bottom item from the submenu you can see your favorite modules. 

Once you are on the Modules page, you can see the Module information and Objectives for the module. Click on the “Start module” button, to start a module. As a teacher you can browse through the module without having to answer every question.

Depending on your license, the following product groups may be available:

  • lesson: Lessons are specially developed modules you can 'play' in your browser. They contain images, animations, simulations, texts and questions on a series of learning objectives. A student can review lessons he has finished through his personal history for 5 years.

  • practical work: This has the same format as lessons; practical work usually requires special hardware.

  • tailor-made lesson: This kind of lesson is custom developed for you in assignment.

  • simulation: These modules you can add yourself. Every module uses the Electude Simulator to replicate a specific failure. Students are tasked with solving a real world problem in the browser. The teacher can set the parameters of the simulation.

  • links: You can add links to other web pages yourself.

  • files: You can add files (e.g. images or PDF documents).

  • DIY lesson: DIY lessons can be 'played' in your browser in the same way as normal lessons, but you can change and add the content yourself.

  • DIY test: A DIY test is similar to a DIY lesson. When the student answers a question however, no direct feedback will be given and the evaluation of the results can be done automatically.

  • DIY task: Unlike lessons and tests, Tasks are not evaluated automatically. Task results need to be recorded by the teacher manually, by reviewing student answers.

  • WorkshopData: This module provides a year's access to an online database with maintenance and repair information for cars. Direct access to the WorkshopData is not available through the history of the student.

  • TruckData: This module provides a year's access to an online database with maintenance and repair information for trucks. Direct access to the TruckData is not available through the history of the student.
