The UNMC E-Learning Steering Committee welcomes submission of proposals for development of online (e-learning) modules to be used primarily for on-campus student learning.

What is an e-module?

 e-learning module An e-module is a 10-15 minutes e-learning platform that has no more than one or two learning concepts and incorporates a blend of teaching and assessment tools that may include video clips, direct instruction, gamification*, and social media.

Funding: Each approved module will be provided funds up to $3,000.

*Gamification is the use of game thinking and game mechanics in a non-game context in order to engage users and solve problems.
