Information Literacy Instruction... At Their Fingertips, Literally

6,359,121 Students Took At Least One Online Class in 20161

This number represents 31.6% of all higher education enrollments. This figure has increased 17.2% since 2012, and trends predict that it will continue to grow.

Your library has distance/online students who need library and information literacy instruction. How are you meeting the needs of your online students and providing information literacy skills, virtually?

Additionally, only 10% of faculty are "Very Aware" of OER resources. This is an opportunity to educate faculty and promote the Library's OER resources as well as subscription-database resources as supplemental to expensive textbooks.2

This webinar will focus on ways you can meet, and even exceed, distance learner needs using LibWizard.

We'll cover:

  • Create Self-Paced Interactive Tutorials - Promote 24/7 learning that occurs anywhere, on any device. Self-paced learning tutorials ensure that users walk away with a learned skill and accomplished task. 
  • Promote OER Content - Use LibWizard to promote open educational resources and high-quality resources to increase awareness.
  • Provide Formative Assessment - Use LibWizard to communicate clear goals, create opportunities to quiz and challenge learners, and provide immediate feedback... all required conditions to achieve "Flow".3
