Credo InfoLit Modules for Faculty: Faculty Module

How to Use

HOW TO USE THE MODULES

The Modules can be accessed in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of your institution. See below for LTI integration ideas and suggestions, as well as information on presenting multimedia to students through Credo's platform or public facing websites like LibGuides.

HOW DO I PRESENT MULTIMEDIA TO STUDENTS?

There are several methods for sharing Modules multimedia with students:

  • Credo's Platform:  The Modules is accessible to users on Credo's platform who are authenticating via IP or proxy access. Instructor view is protected by your admin login and is not visible to students.
  • LibGuides or Course Guides: Individual Modules assets can be embedded in public facing websites. Students can view materials by authenticating via IP or proxy access. To see an example of InfoLit Modules embedded in LibGuides, see our InfoLit Modules demo or our LibGuides Embed Guide.
  • Learning Management System: Modules assets can be integrated with your learning management system gradebook using LTI version 1.1. For more information about LTI integrations, please see the integration guide.

HOW DO STUDENTS ACCESS MULTIMEDIA?

  • IP Authentication: Multimedia materials embedded on public facing sites like LibGuides or your library website are secured by IP authentication. 
  • Proxy Authentication: Off campus users will be prompted to authenticate via their proxy login. Credo will add your proxy string to the URLs and embed codes during the onboarding process.
  • Referring URL Authentication: May be used in secure areas such as your learning management system or in other locations behind your institution’s firewall. For any questions regarding referring URL access, please contact InfoLit support at support@modules.zendesk.com.
  • Session-Based Authentication: When a student begins a new session they will be prompted to complete a session form with some identifying data. This allows the Modules to track their assessment data during the session - without requiring an individual user account and login. The session form will only appear at the start of a session - all subsequent access will not require the form. If a student closes the browser and ends the session, the next time they access the Modules, a new session form will appear. The data collected on this form is customizable.

SUGGESTIONS FOR USING THE MODULES

Support One-Shot Library Instruction

Want to increase the impact of your one-shot session? Pick one or two multimedia to engage your students during your face-to-face time. Would you like to try the flipped classroom? Provide relevant multimedia before your one-shot session and use your in-person time for hands-on practice, discussion, activities.

Do you have a group of freshmen to advise? Distribute relevant multimedia throughout the year to keep them practicing their information literacy skills.

Support Embedded Librarian/Faculty Requests

Do you give presentations to classes outside of typical first year one-shot instruction? Use the module’s multimedia to provide instruction and assessment during the session or before/afterwards for the flipped classroom approach. Consider asking the faculty member to give credit or extra credit for the assessment components.

Do you have faculty members teaching online courses who could benefit from adding videos, tutorials, and assessments to their course? Incorporate the multimedia into their online classroom or course libguide or provide the faculty with the URLs for the materials you select.

Are you embedded in a course or work closely with an instructor? Collaborate with faculty at different levels of undergraduate education to include relevant multimedia with their courses. Supplement with visits from you or your instruction team as your staff allows.

Support Point of Need Instruction

Do your students rely on your website for research help when the library is closed? Place multimedia on your LibGuides or Library website as a resource for students as they are using your site. The multimedia can be used anywhere you want to reach out to students.

Do your students need extra practice after receiving one-on-one help from your librarians? Refer students to the modules to go deeper on concepts that are difficult to teach in the moment, or as an additional resource for reinforcement or newly discovered skills.
