How do I remove or add a module type to my system? How do I manage which module types are seen by role?

Every Headrush system comes preloaded with four default Module Types:

  • Seminar

  • 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:

  1. Set which Module Types are enabled and what each role sees

  2. 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

  1. Module Summary

  2. Users (creators/advisors/members)

  3. Learning targets Alignment 

  4. Start/end dates duration and tags

  5. Tag input 

  6. Duration

Available Module Overview Answer Types

  1. Plain Text

  2. Rich Text

  3. Select Input (Dropdown)

  4. Date

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.
