To Infinity and Beyond Videos: Creating a Coordinated Suite of Online Learning Tools that Engage Researchers and Enhance Learning

Published on

This lightning talk will discuss Virginia Commonwealth University Libraries’ efforts to create a comprehensive suite of online learning tools aimed at covering information literacy competency standards. The VCU Libraries initiated a coordinated effort to build effective online learning tools that encompass much more than just videos. Videos are valuable and often effective, but they should not be the only learning tools. This lightning talk will introduce examples of interactive online learning tools that stimulate engagement and critical thinking, strategies in developing coordinated tools, and provide information on software, programs and websites libraries can use to build their own tools.

Download the presentation to get the full effect with animation, plus talking points.
