FALCON: an interactive library instruction tutorial

FALCON: an interactive library instruction tutorial Bowling Green State University Jerome Library's Web tutorial, FALCON, models a standard library instructional session on the use of the library's Web-based catalog. Tutorials can be particularly helpful in reaching large numbers of students. The degree of interactivity and the design of a tutorial are dependent on the goals of its creators and the intended audience of the product. Several features make FALCON unique. It is interactive, self-contained and focuses on a single resource. Interactivity is accomplished without scripts or forms. The tutorial's self-containment, achieved with a complex system of files and without a live catalog connection, enables users to learn how to search the catalog at their own pace, at a time or place of their choosing and without the threat of venturing into cyberspace. Future enhancements to the tutorial will include assessment and evaluation materials. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Reference Services Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Bowling Green State University Jerome Library's Web tutorial, FALCON, models a standard library instructional session on the use of the library's Web-based catalog. Tutorials can be particularly helpful in reaching large numbers of students. The degree of interactivity and the design of a tutorial are dependent on the goals of its creators and the intended audience of the product. Several features make FALCON unique. It is interactive, self-contained and focuses on a single resource. Interactivity is accomplished without scripts or forms. The tutorial's self-containment, achieved with a complex system of files and without a live catalog connection, enables users to learn how to search the catalog at their own pace, at a time or place of their choosing and without the threat of venturing into cyberspace. Future enhancements to the tutorial will include assessment and evaluation materials.
