Resources for Distance Instructors

A brief guide to Dupré Library resources and services for distance instructors.

Library Basics for Moodle

To ensure that your students have quick, easy access to important information about the Library, please consider including some or all of the information here in your Moodle course page. To easily create a Library block in Moodle, first 'Turn editing on', go to 'Add a Block' (this option appears at the bottom of the right sidebar as the default), and select 'HTML'. Then select the wrench icon to begin editing.

Learner Support Block in Moodle

The Learner Support block in Moodle 2.7 links to the Library's Guide for Distance Learners, but there are additional ways to include the Library in your Moodle classes, including tutorials, library reading lists using EDS Curriculum Builder, embedding search widgets, and even embedding a librarian.
