Instruction on the Go: Reaching out to Students from the Academic Library
Moorefield-Lang, Heather; Hall, Tracy
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v9 n1-2 p57-68 2015
The purpose of this paper is to describe how a series of one-shot or single class library instruction webinars were created for on-campus and distance education students at Virginia Tech, a land grant institution in rural southwestern Virginia. Virginia Tech's distance learning department on campus trained in Centra 7.6 software and the lead librarian collaborated with peer librarians to offer a wide range of instructional sessions. In this study, interviews were conducted one-on-one with five webinar participants at Virginia Tech. Interviews were digitally audio-taped and transcribed. These interviews were used to gain feedback and information regarding the library-based webinars. Results were organized into thematic codes using NVivo 10 software. Results showed strong interest in the library webinars, especially in the playback or archiving features and interactivity.
