Lesley Library InfoLit Course

When should I use it in my Classroom?

The best time to implement this course would be before any scheduled library instructional session. This helps to ensure that students come into each session with a solid foundation of the subjects that will be addressed in each session, which may encourage more participation and thus a more effective lesson. Additionally, since the modules will help to reinforce the basics of information literacy, instructional session time can be spent entirely on preparing students for their upcoming assignments, thus preventing the need for any additional sessions.

How do I Integrate it into Blackboard?

As long as your Blackboard admin has set up the global LTI tool, follow these steps to add the course item to your Blackboard via LTI as a non-graded item:

Step 1: In your course, select Content from the left-hand course navigation.

Step 3: Fill in the following settings, then click Submit:

 

  • Name: Enter a name for your item
  • URL: This URL is given to you by Credo. If you have lost your URLs, please contact Credo support.
  • Be sure to check the box for "This link is to a Tool Provider".
  • Check "No" for Enable Evaluation so it will not create a gradebook column.
  • Points Possible: Typically, our pre and post tests are worth 25 points and the quizzes are 5 points.
  • Visible to Students: Yes
  • You may also set an optional due date.
