    If the module is available in PowerShell Gallery, you could use Install-Module on a connected computer, and simply file copy the module to the non-connected computer.

    If the module is not available on PowerShell Gallery, then you would need to manually install the module. For example, the RSAT can be used to install many Windows Server modules on a client computer.

    If you were more specific about the module you're writing about, it would be easier to provide a more specific answer.

    To see all modules from the MS powershell gallery

    Find-Module -Name *
    (Find-Module -Name *).Count
    # Results
    # Use a GUI to select to save and install one or more modules.
    Find-Module -Name * | 
    Out-GridView -Title 'Select a module to download and install. Use Shift + Right Click to choose one or more' -PassThru | 
    Save-Module -Path "$env:USERPROFILE\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules" -Verbose

    To save a module to your local system

    Save-Module -Name SomeModuleName -Path $env:USERPROFILE\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules

    Once you save the module, you can just copy that entire module folder to any other computer you want.

    To install a module

    Install-Module -Name SomeModuleName

    Outside of module to leverage, there is a second feature to PowerShell package management via this.

    Find-Package -Name *
    (Find-Package -Name *).Count
    # Results

    One further thing bears mention.

    You can download a module without installing it locally using Save-Module, should you need to save it to a network share or some such and want to copy from there to install it on subsequent machines.
