Librarian Toolkit for Working with Online Instructors and Students

Online programs and departments are increasing at many universities and colleges, and online and distance instructors and students usually feel isolated from campus programs and services. In this changing, academic environment, librarians have to shift their services to be more focused on reaching out to online programs. In this session, an Online Learning Librarian and a Non-Traditional Student Librarian from two public universities will cover tips and tricks for liaison and instruction librarians working with online students and instructors including:

Creating synchronous virtual sessions using free tools

Embedding in learning management systems (LMS)

Programming, marketing, and communicating with online instructors and students

Strategies for creating and managing accessible digital learning objects such as videos and interactive tutorials and modules

Organization and assessment of online learning instruction and digital objects
