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 360. They are embedded into the "My Professional Learning" section of Blackboard (see Access the Tutorials for more information). Faculty requiring their students to complete the tutorials for a grade can ask students to take 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.
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
