What is it?

  • An Allele case is generally synonymous to a worksheet, learning module or patient visit within a space (educational course). Cases can further be broken down into smaller, bite-sized learning chunks called phases that contain specific pieces of educational material and/or specific student assessments. Navigating through a case can range from one in-class session through a few days or more.

Did You Know?

  • If we use a book as an illustrative example:
    • a space would be the book itself
    • a case would be a chapter in the book
    • a phase would be a page within a chapter

Why is it important?

  • Cases in Allele are important because help instructors compartmentalize a set of material and associated assessments to convey a topic to their learners.
