Librarians are available to work with your students as you deliver your instruction online. We can help by:
- Being embedded in your Blackboard courses, so students can ask questions and contact us directly from their course
- Meeting with students via video call or voice call in BlueJeans, for real-time assistance
- Creating videos or webcasts where we provide instructions and guidance to students
- Purchasing videos for you to stream to students
- Creating a research guide, such as this one, which students can use for self-paced instruction whenever they need it
- Working with you to create a library-related assignment that students would complete via Blackboard
- Creating an online activity similar to our Don’t Cancel Class: Starting Research Right lesson, where students would complete readings and other activities online
- Recommending open education resources (OER) from statewide projects such as M.O.S.T. Commons, MERLOT, or GALILEO
