Basically, a VB module is a place to put things you need that have a global scope, i.e. global variable and functions.  It is very similar to Bas Modules in VB6.  Classes are the meat and potatoes of .NET  These are the objects you are creating and manipulating.  Use classes when have a set of data and functions that are somehow related.  Use a Module as a place to store global application data/functions.

Classes are objects where the code is self contained. They usually do a specific job well and are designed to be easily reused without changing the code. The object needs to be properly created and qualified when used.

A module is a way to share variables, functions and procedures throughout an application. A way to use global scope.
