A Module is a focused, independent unit of study consisting of at least 50 minutes of real-time presentation or 4,000 words of content (not including title, abstract, learning objectives, etc.). A Module can be thought of as a 50-minute class period. Learning for a module is assessed by 5-10 test questions.
