Make resources available electronically

Use Wooster’s course management system, woodle. Faculty can use woodle to post readings, create discussion boards, collect assignments electronically, administer quizzes, and conduct a host of other learning activities.

Use e-reserves in your course – This service from The College of Wooster Libraries allows faculty to drop off paper copies of journal articles or book excerpts for scanning and placement into the electronic reserves course site.

Link to online resourcesLibrarians can assist you with finding online resources you can link to on your course sites, including electronic versions of paper-based material or online audio, video or image resources that may be useful in your class.

Use images in your course – Images can be scanned and place in your course site; Librarians can help you find sources for images to use in your course, including image databases licensed by the College.  (View The College of Wooster Libraries’s online guide to digital media.)

Place audio or video clips online – Excerpts of material can be linked in your Woodle course; the computers in Taylor 205 can be used to digitize this material.

Create a podcast – You can use an iPod or your computer to record short audio pieces that might consist of a “mini lecture” or other material; the audio can be podcast using Profcast.  Users subscribe to a feed of the audio files, so podcasting works best for materials that will be released in a serial fashion throughout a class.
