The Information Skills tool is now at the initial development stage and is now ready for market testing and feedback, so that Viewpoints can develop further versions.
Today Karen Virapen met with Colette McKenna, User Services Librarian, and the team of Sub-Librarians from the University of Ulster. It's important that we get detailed feedback from librarians about the tool at this early stage, as they work closely with academics and students in delivering information skills training.
All the librarians have been invited to an online social network area in Ning, where they can comment on tool prototypes and feed back on any aspects of the design or content.
We hope that collaboration with the library will prove useful in developing useful resources for the Information Skills tool, that will eventually help module co-ordinators and course directors plan their courses.
