Expanding on the popular, practical how-to guide for public, academic, school, and special libraries, technology expert Susan Sharpless Smith offers library instructors the confidence to take Web-based instruction into their own hands. Smith has thoroughly updated "Web-Based Instruction: A Guide for Libraries" to include new tools and trends, including current browsers, access methods, hardware, and software. She also supplies tips to secure project funding and provides strategic guidance for all types of libraries. This completely revised edition also: (1) Builds Web instruction advice on a foundation of the latest research in how learning takes place; (2) Translates technical Web-speak into plain English, so even nonexperts can make effective use of the Web in their teaching; (3) Includes an accompanying Web gallery, providing examples of screen shots and links to exemplary programs; and (4) Shows instructors best practices for incorporating the Web into teaching. Contents include: (1) Setting the Stage; (2) Library Instruction on the Web; (3) Project Framework; (4) Selecting Project Development Tools; (5) Designing the User Experience; (6) Multimedia: Using Graphics, Sound, Animation, and Video; (7) Interactivity; and (8) Evaluation, Testing, and Assessment.
