Every Headrush system comes preloaded with four default Module Types:
- Student-Led Project
- Teacher-Led Project
- Transfer Module
During your organization’s implementation process, these options may have been added to, retitled, and or disabled. In any case, the Admin role has the flexibility to:
- Set which Module Types are enabled and what each role sees
- Set the Workflow for each Module Type
These options are available via the Admin > Learning Modules > Module Options:
At the moment, you’ll need to contact Headrush directly if you’d like to:
- Add new Module Types (aka- Custom Module Types)
- Add/edit/change Module Overview sections, questions, and prompt types
Module Overview questions can be added/changed/removed to match your needs. However, there are some fields required for every Module in Headrush.
Required Module Overview Questions/Fields
- Module Summary
- Users (creators/advisors/members)
- Learning targets Alignment
- Start/end dates duration and tags
- Tag input
Available Module Overview Answer Types
- Plain Text
- Rich Text
- Select Input (Dropdown)
Setting up a Corresponding Default Task Board for Each Module Type
Working with your Headrush Coach, you have the option of configuring a customized/preloaded task board for each Module type. For example, if you want a Capstone Project Module type that has a task board pre-loaded with a certain number of tasks, you can do this. This saves you and students a step in the process and helps reinforce best practice.
So how is a customized Task Board per Module type different than having students select a template?
Well, it is similar for sure. The short answer is it can save a click and avoid confusion of searching for the right example. However, templates offer more self-governed flexibility and allow task types and other details to be set ahead of time, whereas, when templated as part of a module type, only the column titles, task titles, and task descriptions have to be set by your Headrush coach vs with templates you can do yourself.
