E-Learning Instructor Tools

Tools for subject and instruction librarians teaching one-shot instruction sessions, workshops, etc. Tools can be used to create, store, and share instruction materials as well as to further communicate with students and faculty.


As an instructor, feedbacks from your students and colleagues are always helpful. VoiceThread allows users to attach a comment (in the form of video, audio or plain text) to one or more pieces of media within your VoiceThread. Students or instructors can submit their comments or questions when they are viewing the presentation slides. In addition, instructors can also participate in the discussion by leaving a comment. Instructors, log in here.

Comment Assignment: This is a presentation created two years ago on how to find books through our library's online system, and it hasn't been updated since. Please review the presentation and the existing comments from both students and other instructors, and provide some feedbacks to improve it.
