The ODU Libraries' Information Literacy Tutorials are designed to support the Student Learning Outcomes for the Information Literacy General Education requirement at ODU. While any class is welcome to use the tutorials, they are designed to support the curriculum of the general education information literacy courses.
The tutorials are created using a software called Articulate Storyline. They are in an open enrollment/self-enroll Canvas Course called "ODU Libraries Information Literacy Tutorials" (see Access the Tutorials for more information). Faculty requiring their students to complete the tutorials for a grade can ask students to print or screenshot their results to submit for a grade. Each tutorial is set at a 90% pass rate (in other words, students need to receive a 90% to pass). The tutorials can be completed as many times as needed.
Giving Credit for Completion
The easiest way for you to give credit for completion is to require it as an assignment submission in your Blackboard Course. On the last slide of each tutorial, instruct students to:
1. Select "Print"
2. Type in their name
3. Screenshot/save the page that appears. This page includes name, date/time of completion, and their quiz responses.
The Information Literacy Tutorials support and reinforce the following core concepts:
Tutorial One: Starting Your Research
Tutorial Two: Types of Information
Tutorial Three: Where & How to Find Information
Tutorial Four: Evaluating Information
Tutorial Five: Citation
Tutorial Six: Plagiarism
Tutorial Seven: Copyright & Creative Commons
