Content can now be customized to meet students’ needs
BOSTON, Sept. 27, 2016 – Credo, the industry leader for information literacy, critical thinking, and research solutions, announced today it has introduced new content for its InfoLit Modules, as well as a dramatically upgraded platform that enables instructional customization. Credo’s InfoLit Modules – a mix of videos, tutorials, and assessments – are a library of ready-to-use instructional assets to support librarians in teaching information literacy and research skills.
Wednesday, October 19 at 2:00 pm, librarians Tiffany Davis and Vivian B. Milczarski of Mount St Mary College will discuss how they used Credo’s Courseware as an integral part of their First Year Experience (FYE) program. They will share the positive impact the program has had on retention and student-faculty-librarian relationships. In their administration’s culture of assessment, they were able to use the consistent, measurable assessment data provided by Courseware to track student progress and identify areas of need in students’ knowledge.
October 6th and 7th will mark the first ever Credo Education User Summit and Building Learning Communities Forum at the Brownstone Hotel in Raleigh, NC. Existing and potential Courseware customers are invited to explore innovative ways to build stronger learning communities.
