In developing eModules, such as SSM1205, we use a Learning Object framework to
structure the subject matter. A
typical eModule would comprise of a number
of Lessons. Each Lesson would consist of its Objectives, Synopsis,
Content, Assessment and Conclusion. If required, a Final Assessment
can also be included when the student completes all the Lessons.
The Content section within a Lesson is broken down into granular
Topics where along with the information; we also have an audio/video
of the lecturer highlighting important points about the topic.

In addition, each lesson and/or the eModule can be linked to an
accompanying Discussion Forum where students can exchange views
with their peers and lecturers to facilitate asynchronous communication.
eModule also comes with a student survey form to collect feedback
for analysis on the performance of the module. An example
of the statistics that we have collected for SSM1205 can be seen here.
