  • Sharon, Cherie - have a look and edit edit edit your parts of the text. I put in a lot of stuff just as a placeholder. (Slide = Lisa)
  • (Slide = Lisa)
  • (Slide = Lisa) Emerging area of IL (online gaining popularity) Asynchronous library assistance: Students expect on demand assistance Students like/are experienced with living online Increase student confidence levels (BHH, 2010)
  • (Slide = Lisa) Accommodate different learning styles: Students want multiple paths to learning Relate to real work application Organize sequentially Interactive Opportunity to provide feedback Challenges: Findability Database interface constantly changing – challenge Technology requirements to view video Challenge to market and gain feedback Was it worth the time?
  • (Slide = Lisa) Take out/adapt if no time???
  • (Slide = Lisa) SearchPath: Screencasts with interactive elements made using Captivate 2. History a. Text/image based form was converted to video tutorials in 2004 b. Adapted from Western Michigan University’s SearchPath with permission, as part of a joint project with the University of Alberta C. Videos updated with new look/software in 2006 and 2010 and are currently updated when necessary 3. 21 videos in 5 Modules including a. Introduction to the library b. Developing a search strategy c. Searching and Evaluating Websites d. Searching for books e. Searching for articles 5.Embedded in Blackboard for all English 102/111/199 classes. After watching a video, students do a quiz The instructor choses to make the quizzes mandatory for marks, or the whole tutorial can be for a participation mark a. 2011-12 embedded in 182 sections b. Though library created and promoted, we “gave” it to the English department to use, we have no control over how it is emedded in Blackboard, nor do we currently have access to statistics 6. Also publically available on library’s website as a libguide. Allows anyone in any program to view the tutorials as a full set or individually. 7. ESL program instructors are also providing links to videos to their students and show some in class. 8. I have edited 3 specific videos as requested by my Human Resources and Human Services programs to make examples in those 3 videos more relevant to their students – embedded in subject libguides – time consuming 10. Expect library to revisit/revive video tutorials in the future, as per general library trend to distance/online programming
  • (Slide = Sharon)
  • (Slide = Sharon) Liaison Librarianship: how the idea came about: Lisa forwarded WILU 2012 information to Sharon, thinking she might be interested in the teaching aspect Sharon thought it would be a good medium to present about a pilot project that could be done between EDIT 202 students and the library Sharon suggested a hard working student who could help with the pilot project, as a test before doing it in the classroom Timeline restrictions: Project was conceived in Fall 2011 Pilot was proposed for Winter 2012 to test process before rolling it out to the entire class Cherie had to learn the skills before working on the project (Winter 2012) Challenges When the library is quiet, students are busy with assignments/finals and faculty are busy with marking!
  • (Slide = Cherie) Cherie – Feel free to make this as many slides long as you want!
  • (Slide = Lisa/Cherie?) Found this in the library literature – you could speak to it, note how it applied to your work on the video – or delete it. Might be a good time filler? Might be useless? We should discuss and decide – it is out of scope but maybe important? I’m undecided about this slide… Students liked short videos (1-3 mins) Pace is important Important information first Clear, simple, not flashy Focus on one specific skill No library jargon Images and text Navigation – must be where students go

  • (Slide = Sharon)
  • (Slide = Sharon/Lisa) School libraries – access/communication challenges

    • 3. Video Tutorials in Libraries“As the line blurs between students who approach theInternet as distance learners and students who preferonline learning, libraries are expanding theirinstructional reach and effectiveness through thecreation of online tutorials.” (Bowles-Terry, Hensley &Hinchliffe, 2010, p. 19)“Todays students have grown up in a heavily mediatedand fast-paced online environment.” (Pressley, 2008, p.19)
    • 4. Video Tutorials in Libraries“Students recommend the use of multiplemodalities in the design of learning objects.They prefer that the learning objects includeboth images and sound, are visually engaging,and are available at point-of-need, with someway to pick and choose sections to review.”(Mestre, 2010, p. 827)
    • 5. Video Tutorials in Libraries• Poll: Who uses video tutorials in their library?• Paired Discussion: – How are tutorials used in your library? – Who creates your video tutorials? – What software/tools are used to create/display the videos?

    • 10. Tips for Creating Videos1. Keep it short & concise2. Credit licensed media as you go.3. Choose a generic file format. (Not all hosts accept Flash)4. Offer iPod versions.5. Consider using captioning to offer subtitles or translations.6. Add your brand/logo to title slides.7. Remember the 100 MB limit of most hosts.8. Reduce file size by only recording an area of your desktop.9. Post your screencasts on Facebook & other social sites.10. Have fun! (Kroski, 2009, p. 42)
