Over the summer a few librarians worked together to create a suite of interactive tutorials that are applicable to all disciplines and levels. The tutorials are stored in Kaltura on a channel called Engaging with Scholarly Content. Each tutorial has a distinct url and embed code both of which can be added into Sakai. Kaltura requires students to login so basic analytics are stored such as the students' names.  In addition, they designed the tutorials with questions embedded throughout so faculty could receive a report on which students took the tutorial and their corresponding responses. Knowing the faculty are required to provide asynchronous content during the week of Thanksgiving, they thought these might be of use for that purpose.

If there was ever a time to consider writing a Haiku poem - this must surely be it. Allow yourself to explore this creative form of expression that captures a moment or an experience in a concise, succinct way.  No poetry writing experience necessary. Anonymous entries accepted. Our hope is to create a snapshot of this unique time we find ourselves in through the Haiku Project. A collage of words/voices from the IC community. So, whether you find inspiration while walking on a nature trail, while turning your computer off, while reading your breakfast cereal box... or whatever moves you, we'd love to hear from you.
