Module Facts:

   All Joomla websites require at least 1 Menu Module
   All Other Module Types are Optional. (Examples: News, Banner, Latest News)
   Every Menu is accompanied by a menu module. (Example mod_mainmenu)
   Multiple occurrences of similar module types.
   Some Modules are linked to components. For example, each Menu Module is related to one Menu component. To define a Menu in Joomla!, you need to create the Menu and Menu Items using the Menus screens and then create the Module for the Menu using this screen. Other Modules, such as Custom and Breadcrumbs, do not depend on any other content. See Module Manager - New/Edit for information about the different Module Types.

The Joomla! installation is accompanied with 20 module types, additional 3rd party modules can be located at the JED.
