Online Interactive Information Literacy Modules

Covering necessary information literacy topics in a traditional "one shot" session can be difficult. To address this challenge, a suite of interactive online modules were developed to provide active learning lessons on various information literacy topics. The modules can be used in fully online, flipped or face-to-face courses and can be integrated into a learning management system (LMS) so student knowledge and progress can be tracked and assessed. Developed using Articulate Storyline, the sources files are available as open source downloads under a GNU General Public License (GPLv3) from the Marquette University Libraries GitHub site. Please feel free to download and continue to enhance and improve these modules.
