Advantages of module-based learning

Module-based learning is a pedagogical approach where knowledge and skills are organized and structured in modules that focus on certain parts of a larger subject area. The approach contains learning processes that are structurally designed to combine different learning methods and strategies to create a comprehensive and effective learning experience for those who will carry out the learning measures.

The learning content is divided into several modules, and can be structured in both chronological and freer sequences. The methods can cover both formal and informal learning, and vary from traditional courses and meetings to the use of digital learning forms such as e-learning/micro-learning, webinars, digital checklists and more.

The variety of different content elements that can be combined facilitates covering the various competence dimensions of theory, knowledge and attitudes in a good way and supports both the theoretical and practical approach to learning.

The combination of different methods for acquiring knowledge and skills means that module-based learning takes into account different preferences for how people like to learn in different ways.

The different variations of methods and dissemination of content means that you combine the advantages of digital learning tools and the human contact and cooperation that can contribute to making the learning process better and more efficient for the learners.

Another advantage of using learning technology and module-based learning is the possibility of adaptation and differentiation for different roles or parts of the business. This can both contribute to increased motivation and commitment to learning because it becomes relevant for the various target groups, and not least increase the likelihood of reaching the desired learning goals and benefiting from the learning.


Some advantages of module-based learning:


  • Effective: Module-based learning can be more effective than traditional learning courses due to the possibility to organize and structure different learning methods and combinations of content delivery
  • Relevant: With customized modules for specific roles or parts of a business, you can ensure
  • Accessible: By using learning technology and digital tools to support different methods and learning processes, module-based learning is more accessible than with traditional learning, personal and as relevant training as possible
  • Flexible: By combining different learning methods and the opportunity to implement these digitally, it provides greater flexibility in both the structure and implementation of the module-based learning


When is module-based learning appropriate?

Module-based learning is suitable for everything from small and large competence upgrades in the business, to focus on an area of focus, an important role or other development courses, such as the introduction of new employees, management training, talent development and more.

However, the content to be distributed and made available should be comprehensive enough so that both the business and those who will carry out the learning benefit from the organization and structural design that module-based learning can add.
