Information Literacy Module Demo


What are the Information Literacy Modules?

The information literacy modules are instructional resources that faculty can integrate into their courses to help students build and improve the fundamental research  skills needed to succeed.  The modules can be incorporated into courses as graded assignments or practice modules. For more information about the learning objectives of each module visit the Modules page.

These modules are accessible through the Obojobo Next platform which are embedded in a course.
