What Are Modules?

Writing Center modules are multimedia, self-paced tutorials focused on a particular topic in the categories of grammar, APA, and plagiarism prevention. Any student can take the modules. Each module contains the following:

  • A premodule quiz
  • Video clips and interactive presentations
  • Instructional resources, like webpages and blog posts
  • Practice questions to test your knowledge and receive feedback
  • A postmodule quiz
  • A survey
  • A certificate of completion

Review the information below to learn how to access modules, then visit the individual module pages for specific information about each module and links to register for and access each module.

How to Access Modules

New Users

If you have not accessed a module before, you will need to create a new user name and password when you register for the module. To do so, follow these directions:

  1. Click the "I'm ready to start learning!" link for the module you would like to take.

  2. Fill out the registration form, including entering your e-mail address and creating a password. 

    • Note: The modules are not associated with your myWalden portal, which is why you need to create a new password. Use your Walden e-mail address to register for the module, but you can chose any password you would like.

  3. Select "View" to open the module.

Going forward, you will now be a registered user in our system, so you will use this e-mail address and password to access any other Writing Center modules.

You can exit the module and re-enter the module at any time to pick up where you left off.

Returning Users

Returning users should use the e-mail address and password they used to register for their first module to access any subsequent modules. To do so, follow these directions:

  1. Click the "I'm ready to start learning!" link for the module you would like to take.

  2. Select "If you have registered with us before, please click here." 

  3. Sign-in with the e-mail and password you used to register for your first module. 

    • Note: The modules are not associated with your myWalden portal, which is why you need to create a new password. If you forgot your password, click "Forgot your password?" to reset it.

  4. Select "Continue" to open the module.

Completing Modules

Time to completion: 

  • Each module has an estimated time to completion, although this time will vary depending on your familiarity with the module's topic.
  • You do not have to complete the entire module in one sitting; you are welcome to close the module and return to it at a later time to complete it. 

Beginning the module: 

  • You need to complete the premodule quiz before the module's instructional tutorials become available.
  • There is a suggested order to complete the instructional tutorials, but you can complete them in any order you'd like.

Completing module instructional tutorials: 

  • Once you complete each tutorial, they will be marked as "finished." However, if there is a technical error and a tutorial you have finished is not marked "finished," you should still continue with the module; this will not impede your progress in or completion of the module.
  • You are welcome to complete any tutorial more than once to review its content.

Completing the module: 

  • Once you have completed all of the module's instructional tutorials, you can take the postmodule quiz. To pass the module, you will need to achieve an 80% score on the postmodule quiz.
  • If you do not achieve an 80% score, we encourage you to review the quiz and the module's tutorials, then take the quiz again. You can take the quiz as many times as you'd like.

Certificate of completion:

  • You can download and save the module's certificate of completion to your computer for your own records or to submit to a class or course instructor. 

Mobile Use

Many of the modules' features are accessible on a mobile device. However, not all features will work on a mobile device, so we encourage students to use a laptop or desktop to access modules. We will continue to work on making all module features fully accessible on mobile devices.
