We are happy to announce that we’ve created a Learning Tools product family to offer librarians new and updated resources for teaching foundational skills like information literacy, critical thinking, and communication.
As part of this process, the InfoLit Modules will now be known as Instruct (TM) to best reflect these new and forthcoming instruction possibilities. The product and service you’ve come to love won’t change, and no action is required on your part. See our recent press release or this message from our General Manager for more information about the change.
In addition to Instruct, the Learning Tools family now also includes View (TM), an instructional video collection that will help librarians kickstart new initiatives or enhance existing lessons.
New and Updated Content
For existing customers, we’ll update your account to reflect the Instruct branding in mid-December as part of our Winter 2018 content update. As always, our content update also includes new and updated multimedia content. The new content will be available for preview in mid-November - learn more on our announcement page here.
To prepare for this upcoming content update, we’ve released a new feature called the “Link Constructor”, allowing you to generate link and embed codes as a self service. This makes it easy for you to add your proxy when needed and for us to ensure that you always have the up-to-date and correct links for your account. Access to this feature begins Friday, September 28 on your admin dashboard; during the next content update, it will replace the three tabs for links, embeds, and LTI on the admin dashboard. To learn more about the Link Constructor and other features, see here.
Again, no action is required on your part at this time, but please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or comments!
