Student guide to Blackboard learning modules (resource learning units)


Learning modules (resource learning units) allow Blackboard content items to be presented in a sequential fashion and to group together content in a single unit.

You may see content items such as:

  • Text
  • File
  • Audio
  • Image
  • Video
  • Web link
  • Tests (quizzes)

A typical format may be several sections divided by folders and sub-folders into introductory text, images and videos sourced from learning resources, then followed by quizzes.
