Carmen Modules

Carmen Modules allow instructors to organize content to help control the flow of a course. Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or a different organizational structure that works for your course. With modules, you are essentially creating a one-directional linear flow of what you would like your students to do.

You can include assignments, files, pages, and link to external resources in each of your modules.

To control when students are able to view and access certain content, organize your content using Modules. Then, you can do the following:

  • Once the content has been added to a module, you can edit the Module to select what content is required for the completion of the module. See How do I add requirements to a Module? for step-by-step instructions.

  • When more than one module exists, the next modules allow you to add prerequisites to select which modules must be completed prior to being allowed access. See How do I set up prerequisite Modules? for step-by-step instruction.

Below is an example of a course using Modules to organize course content week-by-week.
