Learning objects as tools for teaching information literacy online: A survey of librarian usage

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

Based on information gathered from two discussion sessions moderated by members of the Education and Behavioral Sciences Section's Online Learning Research Committee a survey was conducted to identify how librarians use course/learning management systems and learning objects to deliver instruction. Objectives of the study were to identify the experiences of librarians who are using course/learning management systems; in what context learning objects are being developed and used; and the pedagogical considerations by librarians when creating online learning materials. In addition to discussing the results of the survey, a description of a "Toolkit for Online Learning" created by the Online Learning Research Committee is provided.
