Why Concepts?

   Embraces content modularity and granularity
    (smaller size)
   Allows for multiple paths through content
   Usable across multiple courses, activities & programs

   Should be tied to learning objectives!
          An element of quality course design
          Learning objectives should be clear, measurable and have
           assessments to test them
