Online Module Descriptor

To create new modules and propose amendments to existing modules, please use our online module descriptor which you will find through evision. (you will be asked to login and taken to a homepage. Click the module information tab to go to the online descriptor dashboard).


If you are unfamiliar with the evision or would like some support as you familiarise yourself with the online module descriptor format, we have created a moodle course to assist you. It includes step-by-step instructions and video walk-throughs to help you to navigate through the screens. You can self-enrol on the course by following this link to Moodle.


The moodle course is primarily intended to help you with the online descriptor, rather than to help you with module design. In planning your module, you may find the additional guidance below helpful. It sets out the fields that you will be asked to complete in the online module descriptor; the permission levels for changes; and provides some guidance on aspects of module design.
