Sorry last thread from me, but this is something we had raised a few years back and I wanted to breath some life into it again - why not modularise courses to allow greater flexibility to the learner?  I suspect I know the barriers, but I am interested in thoughts.

    I have always offered my course in modules but only a few take a module mainly for the skiing module. It maybe the way they are presented the course in the menu or schools may find it difficult to fill up the student's timetable unless the modules all start and end at the same time. Maybe a first step is to break courses into semesters like the university and they can take a papers(modules)till end of term 2 or full year course.The other issue is students who are aiming of merit/excellence endorsements usually need to do whole course and also sit externals in most subjects so we have noticed students less willing to do modules since this was changed.
