Survey! Instruction in Course Management Software

Does your library use Blackboard, WebCT, Moodle, Angel, or another Course Management or Learning Management System for library instruction? If so, you are being invited to participate in a brief survey. The purpose of this national study is to determine how health sciences librarians are using Course or Learning Management Systems. Specifically, what content are you providing with this delivery method and what are the technology’s existing limitations?

The results of this research will be presented at the upcoming 2011 MLA annual meeting in Minneapolis, MN, and potentially submitted for future publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Please take ten minutes to complete the brief online survey that can be accessed at the following URL:  http://jmu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2iqX1AcwwLPyu8I
Please complete this survey by March 15, 2011.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to complete the survey! Please feel free to share with colleagues directly involved in library instruction and course management software.

With appreciation,

Stefanie E. Warlick and Tierney Lyons
