Information and Digital Literacy Instruction Options
Synchronous Instruction via Zoom

- Chat option allows for questions and answers.
- Break out rooms provide an option for small group discussion.
- Students could complete an activity or tutorial prior to session.
- Librarians can pre-record an instruction session rather than offering it "live."
- Power Point and LibWizard tutorials have already been created on a range of topics.
- Some tutorials have built-in quizzes to assess comprehension.
- Tutorials can be assigned to students without involvement of librarians.
- Librarians can also partner with you to assess student learning and/or to provide follow up assistance.
Learning Materials in Canvas
- A range of stand alone learning objects can be incorporated into Canvas or your own Power Points.
- These include videos, tutorials and infographics -- some created by Cornell librarians, some by other libraries.
- Tools can be available to students without librarian involvement.
