DESCRIPTION

Increasingly, as higher education develops online degree programs, campuses need to create library and informational literacy tools available for the student who never comes to campus in person.

    Enable repeated viewing or listening for self-mastery of course content
    Provide technical training in an interactive format that engages 21st century student learners
