Organizing Learning Modules

At the Friday October 28, 2011 meeting, we decided to organize the learning modules as stand alone modules. Thus, instead of thinking of them as linear and writing them as such (i.e. “Now that you’ve done that, do this”), we’re going to conceptualize them as independent lessons that our students (is that the term we want to use?) can pick and choose what they need.

We’ll tweak the naming of the modules from numbered to listing individual modules under topics like “Getting Started,” “Research and Collecting,” “Technology,” “Fundraising,” etc. Another topic we discussed is something like “Public Outreach.”

In individual modules we we’ll strive to have consistent formatting as much as possible. Look to the “Images” module in wiggio as an example. In particular, we will have “suggested readings” at the end of each module.
