Within Canvas, Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or a different organizational structure. Modules form the building blocks of your course – they help you organize course content and ‘flow’ (a one-directional linear flow of what students should do). Each module can contain a variety of items, such as files, texts, assignments, quizzes, and other learning materials. These content items can easily be created, copied-pasted or moved to other modules within the same course or even another course. Below you will find a visual example of a module, both from teacher and student perspectives.

In Canvas you can build and post e-learning modules in your online course. These e-learning modules are called SCORMs, standing for Sharable Content Object Reference Model. Every SCORM package is reusable and can be uploaded into Canvas. With these e-learning modules you can make the preparation of your lectures more interactive. You can add videos, quizzes and other interactive content. Articulate Storyline is an easy to use program that enables you to make an E-module.
You can use Articulate Storyline for:
- Creating interactive e-leaning modules.
