eduMOOC topics/questions of interest:

  • George "Willy" Williams at Chicago State University just raised the following question in a Google Groups thread:
    "Here at Chicago State University we (The Distance Education Committee) have developed a proposal for the librarians to create an online library (information) literacy module for students (and perhaps some faculty). Does anyone have anything like this? I'd appreciate seeing what you have and sharing what our reference librarians come up with."
    If you have examples or suggestions for Willy, please post them as replies in that Google Groups thread.
  • John Graves asks "What tool is best for collaboratively collecting references/citations?" See page on LibraryThing.
