The architecture of 3.x editions is as follows
Backend - modules - you have a module which could have several views - hierarchical like Images and Documents and Blogs module, or flat like Events, News, Generic Content
Front End - presentation controls which could have several views - generally Master - all items are listed. Details - only a single item and its content is listed. The presentation controls are databound controls populated with data from a given provider. Each module can have many providers.
