Use a Spalding Library interactive tutorial as a graded assignment or for extra credit.
Here's how it works:
Copy the tutorial link into your syllabus or LMS (Moodle or Canvas) along with a brief explanation for students.
If you are assigning a tutorial for a course and would like a report of submissions from your students, email Leah Cover with the course number, instructor name, and due date.
Once the due date has passed, library staff will email the instructor a report of all tutorial submissions from their students. Don't see what you need? Do you have suggestions for other tutorials?
If you're interested in developing an interactive, online module for your course, indicate this component on the Request Library Instruction form, or contact Leah Cover ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
Tips for completing the Interactive Tutorials
Complete the tutorial all in one sitting, as it will not save your progress once the browser is closed.
It is recommended that you complete this tutorial on a laptop or desktop computer, as the two-panel set-up is not mobile-friendly.
You may be prompted to open a new webpage. Always make sure to open the link in a new tab or window.
If you would like a receipt of your submission and a copy of your results, you can choose that option at the end of the tutorial.
For additional assistance, contact the library by email, phone, or chat.
