A Course Map

A Course usually contains two modules. Lesson is the amount of learning in one sitting and the Lesson duration has to be fine tuned to 20 or 30 minutes. And a Lesson contains not more than six Topics, say 3 Instructions + 3 Simulations. Each Topic contains a set of Frames. And each Frame must not contain more than 80-100 words.

A learner can take a test at the Course level(summative evaluation) or Topic level(formative evaluation).

Can a course exist without modules? If you have modules you can reuse the content at module level. Modules also help in establishing the prerequisites for a learning unit.

However, If the course needs exploratory learning, you can omit modules and directly have topics.
