The process of module development involves the following 8 main steps:
1. Select an important health topic
2. Identify clearly the learning outcomes
3. Develop the content and formative assessment
4. Internal and external expert review
5. Test draft module in variety of user groups + incorporate feedback
6. Make module available through ISP website
7. Collect feedback from users
8. Update content regularly

We have developed two resources as guides in how to make a module:

•    A module template has been developed that outlines the format and also gives tips for using MS Powerpoint to create content <click here>
•    “How to make an effective eLearning module” gives guidance on developing learning outcomes, copyright and explores some ways of presenting information to best engage the learner. <click here>
Each of the e-learning modules on specific disease has the same basic format:
•    Title slide
•    Details of contributors and expert reviewers
•    Guidelines on how to study module, print-out the formative assessment sheet and information regarding consent for re-use of images and other materials
•    Content, usually in the format:
i. Epidemiology
ii. Basic biology (microbiology, parasite biology, life cycle etc.)
iii. Transmission
iv. Clinical presentation
v. Clinical management
vi. Prevention and control
•    Information sources and further reading

All modules contain formative assessment exercises at regular intervals. Some contain a final self-assessment MCQ at the end. Formative assessment is included to allow users to check their progress and assess what they have learned.
