Are you teaching an online course that is research and writing intensive? If so, Information Literacy modules may be a helpful addition to your course materials.
The Information Literacy Project is a course designed by UToledo Libraries and UToledo Online to teach students the essential skills to effectively find and use information and increase their research abilities. The Information Literacy Project is composed of six individual modules that discuss topics ranging from the basics of retrieving information, to utilizing effective search techniques, to evaluating sources for usefulness and quality.
