Navigating the library environment during the COVID-19 pandemic has engendered technological partnerships that enable us to connect meaningfully with our communities. Librarians will discuss their use of existing and emerging technology to provide access to essential information. During this moderated webinar, three presenters will demonstrate their distinctive online learning objects; a virtual learning environment in Mozilla Hubs, a business research toolkit, and a video tutorial made with a green screen.

This webinar is ideal for individuals who want to expand their online learning object skill set.
