instructions, best practices, and deep links for the Credo InfoLit Modules

Overview

 

"The InfoLit Course Modules are Credo’s answer to the growing need for libraries to conduct formalized, standards-driven Information Literacy instruction both in-person and online. Created by librarians and educators, instructional modules include videos, tutorials, online activities, course notes, guides and promotion materials." - Credo

Using the Modules

  • The Credo IL Modules contain a full suite of more than 60 videos, tutorials, and quizzes. 
     
  • Recommended for online courses (ADA compliant), flipped-classrooms (enabling modern learners), or First Year Experience (foundational skills), these modules can be taught as a complete set -- the modules follow the steps in the research process -- or taught individually. 
     
  • Review the Faculty Module (located at the bottom of the Credo IL Modules) for help teaching with the modules. 
     
  • If you decide you want to use the IL Modules in class, it is recommend that you ask a librarian for assistance integrating the modules into your instruction.

Accessability

The InfoLit Modules has been through a rigorous accessibility testing and is both WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 compliant. You can download the VPAT below.

Voluntary Product Accessibility Template: Download the Modules VPAT as a PDF.

Videos: The video player used in Credo Education products includes closed captions as well as downloadable, timed transcripts. Students may also decrease or increase the narration speed to fit their cognitive learning style. For students with slow internet or bandwidth who are unable` to stream videos, they may read or print the video transcript.

Images: Every image includes an alt text for screenreaders and students who may not be able to see the image. This includes both images with text as well as purely graphic images.

Drag and Drop Questions: The drag and drop questions use target zone labels and drag item descriptions for learners who cannot access the target zone or drag items visually. If you are using a keyboard only, the drag and drop questions include keyboard instructions. To complete the problem using only your keyboard:

  • Use "Tab" and "Shift-Tab" to navigate between items and zones.
  • Press "Enter", "Space", "Ctrl-m", or "⌘-m" on an item to select it for dropping, then navigate to the zone you want to drop it on.
  • Press "Enter", "Space", "Ctrl-m", or "⌘-m" to drop the item on the current zone.
  • Press "Esc" if you want to cancel the drop operation (for example, to select a different item).
