  2. Select the “Community Library” tab at the top of the page.

A list of the modules will appear. Five modules are created by the Office of Experiential Learning: * EL - Making the Most of your Co-op or Internship Experience * EL - Sustainablility * EL - Poverty * EL - Working on Effective Teams * EL - Making Ethical DecisionsSelect a module to learn more details about it, including a full description and the objectives.

Creating an Instance of a Module

Experiential Learning modules can be modified to fit the requirements of a particular course by creating an instance of the object. There is no limit on the number of instances that can be made from an object.

To create an Instance:
  1. Once logged in, go to the “Community Library” tab at the top of the page.
  2. Select the module you want to create an instance of from the list.
  3. Select “Publish Instance” from the top of the Object Description window.
  4. Fill in the required information about this instance, such as Instance Name, Course Name, start and end time/date that this instance will be opened to students, and the number of attempts students will have for the assessment in the module.
  5. Select “Publish” at the bottom of the panel to complete the instance creation.

This instance is now available for distribution to students and can be easily located in the “Published Instances” tab, where all instances are automatically placed upon creation.

Giving Students Access to Module Instances

To Give Students Access to Module Instances:

  1. Once logged into the repository, go to “My Instances” tab at the top of the page.
  2. Select the instance from the list of instances.
  3. Locate the URL for the "Instance Link" at the top of the Object Description panel or click on "Distribute" at the top of the screen and the URL is included in a pop-up window.

The URL will take students to that instance’s unique login page, where they will login with their NID and password.

When assigning modules to your students, it may be helpful to include the following text along with the instance URL to the module:
