Is your library interested in creating online tools like videos and infographics?

Register today for the November 5, 2019 webinar titled "Online Learning Resources: Creating Instructional Objects" to hear an outline of how the library at the University of California, Davis, formed a working group to strategically develop best practices for creating high quality instructional objects. They identified two types of instructional objects: static instructional objects are text and image tutorials and dynamic instructional objects offer audio and video. The working group laid the foundation and trained librarians across the organization to successfully create instructional objects that ensure the following elements: consistency & quality, instructional design & assessment, accessibility & ADA compliance, and metadata & archives.

The instructors: Amy Bush, an Instruction and Reference Services librarian at the University of California, Davis; Erik Fausak, a Health Sciences librarian at the University of California, Davis; and Melinda Livas, the Physical Sciences and Engineering Librarian at the University of California, Davis.

If you have limited resources and would like to begin creating static instructional objects and video tutorials for your library, this is a must see webinar, because the instructors will share their experience and resources.

This webinar is sponsored by the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) a division of the ALA, represents librarians and library staff in the fields of reference, specialized reference, collection development, readers' advisory and resource sharing. RUSA is the foremost organization of reference and information professionals who make the connections between people and the information sources, services, and collection materials they need.
