From podcasts to online courses, new opportunities
for delivering instruction abound, enabling learners to access content
more conveniently than ever before. Whether for traditional instruction,
continuing education, or self-directed lifelong learning, librarians
can reach audiences who would not typically show up for face-to-face
sessions. This course provides an overview of popular distance education
techniques with many examples of how librarians are employing them.
Note: There is a web-based portion of this course
to follow the MLA '08 meeting. Participants will receive 8 MLA CE
contact hours, representing their online and live course work.
