Know the module structure

What is it? 

Due to the standardisation of templates, modules will be created with the same general structure. There will be some variations between schools, so the screenshots shared here may be close rather than identical to what you’ll see in your modules. 

What does it do?

The course content is populated with learning modules for each topic.

  • A central place to navigate all your module content
  • A user-friendly interface to view materials in a range of formats
  • Provides a convenient place for you to locate key information about a topic or reflect on your study from that week

What should I know?

Step 1: To access the module content, you must first sign in to MyDundee and select the module tab which is located on the left-hand menu.

Step 2: Once you have done this, you must select your Module to open it. You can also use the search bar.

Step 3: The course content page will be the central place for all your UoD module content. In Blackboard, each tab is known as a Learning Module which will form the basic structure of your Course Content. To view a Learning Module, you must simply select it.

Step 4: The Learning Module will open like a dropdown menu. Within the Learning Module, you will find various pieces of content relating to the topic. Content you might typically find are folders and documents.
