Online Tutorials for Library Instruction

This guide describes the online tutorials offered through Brightspace by D2L, how to access them, and FAQs for students and faculty.

Can I Use This? Evaluating Your Sources Content and Learning Outcomes

Can I Use This? Evaluation Your Sources gives students a 5 "W" Framework that they can use to evaluate sources that they find throughout the course of their research. It is a video-based tutorial that takes 30 minutes on average to complete.

By the end of the tutorial, students should be able to

  • identify different types of authority
  • recognize that authoritative content comes in many forms
  • assess the fit between their needs and resources

The video has five modules based on the 5 "W" Framework:

  1. Who
  2. What
  3. Where
  4. When
  5. Why & Conclusion

To test comprehension of the concepts, there are three quizzes at the end of modules 2, 4, and 5. In these quizzes, students are provided a sample resource and asked to apply questions from the modules to the resource. The quizzes result in a mark out of ten.
