Have you ever heard of the Choose Your Own Adventure books? They were a group of books that pioneered the idea of a branching story. As you read the book you would come to a point of decision. If the main character came to a cave it would give you the choice to A. Enter the cave or B. Run away. If you chose to Enter the cave you would turn to page 37 or if you chose to Run away then you would choose page 96. The branching storylines made the book engaging and greatly increased the amount of times one could read it before losing interest. Now imagine taking that concept and interweaving it into an online lecture. That is what the Moodle Lesson Module is.

In the Moodle Lesson Module you create an interactive lesson where the students responses guide his/her path through the lesson. If they make a wrong choice or wrong answer you can have them repeat the question or branch off into a more intensive discussion of the subject. This by far is only the tip of the iceberg though. If you would like to learn more about using the Moodle Lesson Module visit http://docs.moodle.org/en/Lessons where it will give you an in depth look at the Lesson Module.
