Online Instruction

The library has a range of tutorials and videos on information literacy topics that can be embedded into Brightspace courses.  A full list of available tutorials, videos, and quizzes are below.  To preview a tutorial please click on the title.  Additional stand alone videos and tutorials are available under the tutorial page linked on the left of this guide.

Instructions for integrating tutorials into Brightspace will be available soon.

For help with these tutorials, please contact the Helmke Library at


If you are using four or more of the tutorials, we also recommend using the pre and post tests provided to assess the impact of the tutorials.  For an instructor to view student completion and grades, the tutorials need to be integrated into Brightspace.
