SEARCH UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES
Library support for College Writing and the Freshman Honors Colloquium includes a mix of online tutorials with quizzes and classroom instructional experiences.
The Library recommends a package of LibraryTutorials & Quizzes for each course. The tutorials are available on the web and linked from our homepage: http://libguides.library.kent.edu/tutorials. If you desire to use the corresponding quizzes they can be placed within your Blackboard Learn course sections. Instructions on setting up the assignment can be found on the Tutorials & Quiz Instructions tab.
As a follow up, and especially for College Writing II and Freshman Honors Colloquium, we also recommend a classroom session with a librarian. This session provides more detailed instruction tailored to the assignments of individual sections. These types of sessions can also be used as "research workshops," where a librarian is available to work with students as they research their topics. See the Library Instruction tab for more information.

Please note that a much more comprehensive Plagiarism Module (which includes several videos, interactive lessons, and a quiz) has been developed by the University Libraries' Plagiarism School Team and is available for uploading directly into your Blackboard Learn course. This can be loaded separately from other library tutorials and quizzes. You may load the package yourself from our Plagiarism Module tab or contact Tammy Voelker if you would like the library to load the Plagiarism Blackboard package into your course.
