Quality online instruction focuses on the learner and learning, rather than on the instructor or the teaching. Elizabeth A. Dupuis, creator of the famous TILT (Texas Information Literacy Tutorial) site covers the basics of effective Web-based library instruction in this unique and practical manual. With chapters by 15 experts--including Susan Curzon, Trudi Jacobson, Clara Fowler, and Scott Macklin--this comprehensive guide discusses scope, timeline, and budget; team and partners; audience and stakeholders; interactivity; content organization and development; site design; putting content online; statistics and metrics; usability testing; and assessment of learning. Anyone creating, revising, or studying learning modules--from short tutorials to complete online courses--will find a wealth of information and insight about planning, design, and management, and evaluation from those who have “been there, done that” in these pages. If you are improving existing online instruction, or delving into this new frontier, this book is essential.
