Asynchronous Modules


Our asynchronous modules, based on concepts of microlearning and scalability, are designed to introduce or reacquaint students with concepts related to information literacy and their research. The modules can be used as a standalone lesson for your students to complete outside of the classroom and can be enhanced and reinforced by an application of the concept either through an in-class activity or an asynchronous activity through OnCourse. Most modules include a quiz component that can be connected with the grade book in OnCourse to record when a student has completed the module. For advice and assistance in using these modules for your courses, contact your liaison librarian

Adding the module to your course will automatically generate a column in the gradebook. You can choose how the module will be graded; the default is to indicate completion when students have completed 100% of the module.
