A module is a self-contained training event, usually lasting less than an hour, covering a specific topic.

Medical and Nursing educators often use modules as a way to address specific learning issues, and may move them around to address scheduling problems.

Modules may deal with knowledge acquisition, or skill acquisition, or both. Modules may be used entirely for training, or for evaluation, or for both.

Here are some of the self-contained modules I’ve used.
