Mods vs. Modules

During this adventure, you will hear reports about Banner “mods” and Banner “modules”. These are not the same thing.

“Mods” is short for modifications. Many Miami-specific customizations have been written over the years. IT Services uses the term “mods” to refer to customizations that have been created by rewriting pieces of baseline Banner code.

“Modules” is how Ellucian/Banner refers to the various parts of Banner. There are Banner Financial, Banner Student, Banner Workflow, and many more Banner modules that are or could be part of Miami’s Banner environment.
