Let's Get Digital: Reinventing Course Material Delivery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Course materials such as textbooks and course packs are becoming increasingly expensive for students, and faculty are presented with increasingly confusing options for incorporating relevant content into their courses.  How can libraries help?  This session discusses the Digital Course Pack project at the University of Minnesota, the goals of which are to streamline the course readings creation process for instructors, integrate library content into course curriculum, present materials in the campus course management system (Moodle), include royalty-based readings when necessary, and to save students money.  This session will include a demo of the system, as well as usage and student savings data.
