Modula is used today but not widely and only in specialised areas.  Modula is a a descendant of Pascal and both were invented by the same author, Nicholas Writh.  Pascal was only ment to be used as a teaching programming language but was snapped up and used by the world when it appeared and adapted for commercial use.  This didn't happen for Modula.  Pascal was sufficient for most users.

Here are links to read on the origins of Modula and Pascal.  These will explains some differences.
