Engaging with Scholarly Content tutorials

Over the summer a few librarians worked together to create a suite of interactive tutorials that are applicable to all disciplines and levels. The tutorials are stored in Kaltura on a channel called Engaging with Scholarly Content. Each tutorial has a distinct url and embed code both of which can be added into Sakai. Kaltura requires students to login so basic analytics are stored such as the students’ names.  In addition, they designed the tutorials with questions embedded throughout so faculty could receive a report on which students took the tutorial and their corresponding responses. Knowing the faculty are required to provide asynchronous content during the week of Thanksgiving, they thought these might be of use for that purpose.


Wednesday September 30 at 7:30 Dr. Claire Gleitman from English be interviewing Kasia Bartoszynska, assistant professor in the English Department and the Women’s and Gender Studies program, at the first-ever F2F (Feminist to Feminist) salon, sponsored by WGST and the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF).  

This event will be the first of many interviews of faculty by faculty which we hope will take place throughout the academic year. 

The event will feature a conversation between Kasia and Claire, followed (we hope) by some Q&A with those in attendance. It will be 75 minutes in length and the link is below.
