This course is designed to cover the fundamental topics in Psychology. Its consists of 16 units, each having an average of four modules. The content of each module is driven by a set of student-centered learning objectives.

For example, students will actively encounter material through “Learn By Doing” activities that facilitate and support learning with hints and immediate, targeted feedback. Coupled with these activities are “Did I Get This?” self-assessments that give students the opportunity to gauge their understanding of the material. Each module ends with a graded assessment.
All of the learning activities, self-assessments, and graded assessments feed data to a Learning Dashboard which the instructor can use to analyze information regarding students’ mastery of the subject matter in terms of the learning objectives.
