Credo Information Literacy - Core is a set of online videos, tutorials, and quizzes covering information literacy skills. USMA Library has subscribed to InfoLit-Core and it is free for you and cadets to use, on campus or off.
This resource aims to:
InfoLit-Core gives you the option to readily incorporate information literacy instruction into your class and assignments. If your class already focuses on information literacy, Instruct can complement what you are doing through 60+ videos, tutorials, and assessments. You can increase instructional time for information literacy by shifting lecture-based instruction to homework (flipped classroom), allowing for hands-on, high impact learning when students come to class.
Here are 3 ways you can utilize InfoLit-Core in your course:
1. Before Library instruction
Do your librarians have limited time with students to teach them research and information literacy skills?
2. Scaffold throughout your Course
Are you concerned about having enough time to cover your course’s content and incorporate research instruction into your syllabus?
3. As a Remedial Tool
Do some of your students need a refresher or additional help with how to do research (transfer students, non-traditional students, at risk students)?
For more ideas on how to implement these suggestions, please contact your USMA liaison librarian.
Links to the material in Credo Instruct can be added to your learning management system (LMS)--the online teaching system you use, such as Blackboard, Canvas, etc. Students will be able to access the material directly from the LMS, with no need for any extra log-in information. When they take a test or quiz via the LMS, their grade will sync directly to the LMS gradebook.
Contact your library liaison for the "LTI links" to add Instruct material to your class LMS. Below are instructions for embedding material in the most commonly used LMSs.
