Now's the Time: Online Library Orientations
Farrell, Sandy L.; Driver, Carol; Weathers, Anita
Community & Junior College Libraries, v17 n1 p7-14 2011
Increasingly at West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC), English 101, English 102, and Enrichment 091 are taught online, allowing students more work availability and time with family, while decreasing commute time and expense. In order to meet the library orientation needs of these online students and provide other options for "missed" on-campus sessions, the Library Instruction Team, unfamiliar with possible software products available for this purpose, set out to develop online tutorials. In the beginning, the Team looked at several software options, Jing, SoftChalk, and Camtasia Studio, as well as researching the tutorial/orientation efforts of other libraries. Still experimenting, the Team decided to make their tutorial(s) available through Blackboard, the course management software used for WKCTC online classes. The adventure began. PowerPoint presentations were revised; scripts were written; and tutorials were recorded and posted on Blackboard.
