Prior to building a content module (a.k.a. "exercise") on the Practice platform, it can be helpful to think through the elements of a good learning exercise. This document is available for download via the below attachment.
The purpose of this guide is to support your mapping and drafting of a content module. Below you will find definitions of the various components of a content module, as well as a drafting template. The Knowledge Base is also an excellent resource if you have specific questions about Exercise components or configurations.
- Learning Objective: What is the purpose of this Content Module?
- Title: Title of the individual Content Module
- Description: This is an area where you can provide written instructions, provide tips and expectations, etc.
- Supplemental Content: Any additional resources (documents or links) you would like to provide for your Learners.
- Prompt Script: This is the script for the video that will prompt the Learner to respond with their own video submission. It is often structured as a role-play or scenario.
- Assessment Questions: These questions will form the basis for how learners evaluate themselves and peers, and how Instructors/Facilitators will assess Learners.
- Written Feedback Prompt: You can provide custom written feedback prompts.
- Competencies: A label given to key skills that can be linked to assessment questions.
- Model Response Script: A video that demonstrates the best practice of the skill you are supporting.
- Model Response Text: Text included next to the model response video.
- Self Reflection Prompt: Pose your learners a question asking them how they will perform the skill differently in the future.
- Configuration: After a Content Module is built in the Library, it can be pulled into a Group and configured as an Exercise. Configuration includes a series of Exercise feature choices, as well as dates for each learning stage.
Content Module Template
|This does not show up anywhere on the Exercise. However, it is helpful to have your observable learning goal in mind as you design your Exercise.|
Description (Optional Text)
|Do you want to provide an overview, instructions, or other information that Learners can access prior to and throughout the Exercise?|
You can create as many assessment questions as you need for each Exercise. Each question should have unique title. You can add a title description and attach a competency to each title/ question. You can define the description and scale values for each question.
Title: How prepared was the presentation?
