Abstract:

Proficiency in using educational technology tools is becoming increasingly important for all instructors and librarians. The question is which tools to use and how to make them a meaningful part of students’ experiences in classrooms and at reference desks. Educators should also be able to make the most of educational technology when providing services to distance education students.

This presentation will show some of the major types of educational technology tools used at the university level including screen-capture software, citation management software, research tools, course management systems, podcasting, presentation software, and Second Life. The presenter will give an overview of what technology exists, how it is used, and why it is worthwhile. Students expect more multimedia instruction both online and in-person. By using these tools professors and librarians can provide instruction that is more vibrant and interactive without sacrificing content.
