In this paper, we introduce and study the notions of weakly ⊕-supplemented modules, weakly D2 modules and weakly D2-covers. A right R-module M is called weakly ⊕-supplemented if every non-small submodule of M has a supplement that is not essential in M, and module MR is called weakly D2 if it satisfies the condition: for every s ∈ S and s ≠ 0, if there exists n ∈ ℕ such that sn ≠ 0 and Im(sn) is a direct summand of M, then Ker(sn) is a direct summand of M. The class of weakly ⊕-supplemented-modules and weakly D2 modules contains ⊕-supplemented modules and D2 modules, respectively, and they are equivalent in case M is uniform, and projective, respectively.
