April Cunningham (Palomar College)
Based on results from the assessment of the Information Literacy institutional student learning outcome at Palomar College, faculty from inside and outside the library collaborated to create a modular, accessible, and integratable tutorial using Articulate software. This session will describe that process and explore the results of the tutorial development.

Lesley Farmer (CSU Long Beach)
Screen capture is used routinely by librarians for instruction, particularly in showing processes such as searching databases. The video captures action, and the voice-over feature offers a think aloud procedure. Screen capture can also be used to assess student learning. As a diagnostic tool, librarians can have students do a screen capture of a student's information behavior (such as locating a scholarly article). Screen capture can also be done as a formative assessment to target interventions, and as a summative assessment for students to demonstrate performance competence authentically. Students can also develop their own presentations using screen capture, which then becomes a peer teaching opportunity. This session will describe how to successfully use screen capture for all of these purposes in teaching online.

Annette Marines (UC Santa Cruz)
Created by librarians at the University of Arizona, the Guide on the Side software is a freely available tool that allows librarians to "quickly and easily create online, interactive tutorials that are based on the principles of authentic and active learning." This session will describe UC Santa Cruz's success in moving lower division instruction online with the help of Guide on the Side.

Dominique Turnbow (UC San Diego)
This session will describe a process to move a successful in-person instruction method to an online environment using Articulate Storyline. This session will discuss the project in detail, focusing on opportunities, challenges, solutions and next steps.
