Building a Better Process: Creating a Sustainable Tutorials Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Instructional objects are ephemeral in nature: needs change, your teaching matures, staff changes, and technology advances. Video tutorials are one of the more difficult types of instructional objects to create and update, which can lead to outdated and inaccurate library tutorials lingering on the library website. This presentation will tell the story of how our library was failing but retooled our approach to build a new tutorial service from the ground up. Participants will learn about our project management plan for creating a sustainable approach to library tutorials as well as a robust model for partnering with an instructional designer.

Participants will:
  • Examine and define different models for tutorials creation and maintenance.
  • Express their tutorial needs with an instructional designer using common language.
  • Apply methods of project management in order to create a more sustainable tutorials program at their library.
