Gordon Library Video Tutorial Suite (Faculty & Instructional Staff): Home

The following guide provides an overview of current video tutorial offerings from the Gordon Library.

Welcome to the Gordon Library Video Tutorial Suite!

Faculty friendly. Student-centric. Data driven. Analytically informed. Style meets substance. 

Introducing The Gordon Library Video Tutorial Suite.

What's in this guide?

This guide provides a survey of the current digital learning objects developed by librarians at the Gordon Library on the Research and Instruction team. Presently, tutorials are organized into four general categories of instruction, based upon identifiable student informational needs. Furthermore, updates and additions will occur on a rolling basis, with the intention of highlighting the library's expansive portfolio of student-facing services (of which there are many). So, stay tuned!

If you are new to the Suite, please review the brief introductory video which discusses some of the inspiration and philosophy which underpins these assets. In addition, for quick on-boarding, see the list below of some of the more notable features from our tutorials on offer.

Video tutorial features:

  • Multiple tutorial categories which prioritize the WPI student user experience. 
  • Multiple access points for faculty deployment & instructional design ease (direct links & embed codes).
  • Multiple formats for ease of student access and engagement (video, textual document, PPT).
  • Closed captioning enabled for inclusive access; incorporation of Universal Design (UDL) Best Practices.
  • Individual tutorial design, feel, and flow informed by previous digital asset assessment via Google Analytics.
  • Integrated and legible Student Learning Outcomes (or competencies) highlighted for each tutorial, developed in conversation with overall Learning Outcomes at WPI.
  • Official WPI Branding.
