Scorm Modules For Il Instruction And Assessment, Eric A. Kowalik Mar 2019

Scorm Modules For Il Instruction And Assessment, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

Rapid e-learning programs such as Articulate Storyline make it possible to develop highly interactive sharable content object reference model (SCORM) packages without advanced programming knowledge. These SCORM packages can be loaded into most learning management systems (LMS) and allow librarians to better gauge students' information literacy competency and create flipped instruction opportunities to allow for better use of valuable in-class time. Learn about the development, implementation, and evaluation of these SCORM packages, then join us in helping to improve them by downloading the open source packages from the project GitHub site - http://marquetterml.github.io/information-literacy-modules/.


Problems And Promises Of Using Lms Learner Analytics For Assessment, Valerie Beech, Eric A. Kowalik Jul 2018

Problems And Promises Of Using Lms Learner Analytics For Assessment, Valerie Beech, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

Learning management systems (LMS) are widely used in education. They offer the potential for assessing student learning, but the reality of using them for this is problematic. This case study chronicles efforts by librarians at Marquette University to use LMS data to assess students’ information literacy knowledge in Marquette’s first-year English program.

How many times have you participated in this scenario?

Student: I can’t find this article in the databases (she shows you a citation).
You: Oh, this citation is for a book. Let’s check the catalog.

Helping students understand citations seems to be an on-going activity, but learning about citations can be boring and requires attention to detail. In order to address this problem, we created a fun tutorial using drag-and-drop technology that can be used in an online environment or in the classroom. The tutorial helps students identify the elements of a citation, place them in the correct ...

Leveraging Articulate Storyline And An Lms To Go Beyond The One Shot Il Session, Eric A. Kowalik, Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes, Valerie Beech Apr 2016

Leveraging Articulate Storyline And An Lms To Go Beyond The One Shot Il Session, Eric A. Kowalik, Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes, Valerie Beech

Eric A. Kowalik

Covering necessary information literacy topics in a one shot session can be difficult. To address this challenge, the Marquette Raynor Memorial Libraries moved to a new instruction model for the First Year English program. The new model involved embedded librarianship and interactive Articulate Storyline tutorials pre-loaded into the Learning Management System (LMS). These new initiatives provided flexibility in teaching information literacy concepts and fostered stronger relationships between librarians and their instructors. Learn about the development, implementation and evaluation of this new program. (Transcripts of the presentation can be found in the Notes field of the PowerPoint slides).

The tutorials used ...


Developing A Library Widget For The Campus Lms, Eric A. Kowalik Apr 2015

Developing A Library Widget For The Campus Lms, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

In the Summer of 2014 the Raynor Memorial Libraries was given the opportunity to add a library widget to all course homepages in Desire2Learn, Marquette's Learning Management System (LMS).

The widget, developed with HTML, CSS and jQuery, allows students to search the library catalog and link to various library services such as ILL and E-Reserves directly from within a course site.

Recently, Google Analytics has been added to the widget allowing the libraries to analyze usage and student searches by course. Come learn about the development and implementation of this widget.

Like what you see? The code is open ...


Re-Thinking Information Literacy Training With Desire2learn Learning Environment And Scorm, Eric A. Kowalik Apr 2014

Re-Thinking Information Literacy Training With Desire2learn Learning Environment And Scorm, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

The flipped classroom that started in K-12 has now caught the attention of higher education as a way of encouraging deeper and more meaningful learning for students.
This presentation will demonstrate how, by using an Articulate Storyline SCORM package within the Desire2Learn platform, librarians and instructors flipped the information literacy training session.
A similar version of this presentation was also given at the 2014 Wisconsin Desire2Learn Ignite Regional User Conference in Waukesha, WI.


Higher Education At The Margins, Eric A. Kowalik, Heidi Schweizer, Ken Daily, Jon Pray Jul 2013

Higher Education At The Margins, Eric A. Kowalik, Heidi Schweizer, Ken Daily, Jon Pray

Eric A. Kowalik

Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at the Margins (JC:HEM), is an initiative of the Society of Jesus that brings Jesuit higher education to those at the margins of our society. It provides courses and degrees to refugees via the volunteer activities of online course providers from many Jesuit schools and draws on the rich Jesuit tradition of higher education. We explain how Marquette University has worked to develop courses for JC:HEM and provide ways your institution can partner to contribute courses and resources to this endeavor.


An Evaluation Of A Wiki Tutorial On Web Accessibility For Uc Irvine Web Programmers, Eric A. Kowalik Apr 2007

An Evaluation Of A Wiki Tutorial On Web Accessibility For Uc Irvine Web Programmers, Eric A. Kowalik

Eric A. Kowalik

Education is shifting from the real world classroom to a virtual Internet world where learning can occur at any time and any place. The development web sites and virtual learning environments ultimately fall to programmers who create the code, unfortunately many programmers have not been educated about the necessary steps that need to be taken to ensure the web sites they create are accessible to all learners, even those with disabilities. This project includes a review of literature on web accessibility and a collaborative web based training tutorial designed to educate programmers at the University of California, Irvine about web ...
