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.
