Tutorials at UW

What are the InfoLit modules?

The InfoLit modules are a set of six interactive tutorials and a pre and post-test on the library research process which you can add to your WyoCourses class shell. We recommend these tutorials primarily for FYS classes. The modules are:

  1. Pre and post-test
  2. Getting Started with Research
  3. Sources of Information
  4. Searching for Information
  5. Evaluating Information
  6. Presenting Research and Data
  7. Citations & Academic Integrity

Feel free to use these modules however they best meet the needs of your class: you can use just one, pick a few, or use the whole set. 


If you don't care about saving quiz scores to your gradebook, you can use the InfoLit Modules without importing them to your Canvas site. A link to the full modules is below. 

*UW login required to access the modules.

Import Steps

Log into WyoCourses and go to Commons.

Search for University of Wyoming Libraries, InfoLit, Libraries, or UW Libraries in the University of Wyoming Canvas Commons resources.

Select the module of your choice and then choose Import into Course. Repeat for additional library modules you plan to use. 

It may take a few minutes for the files to be imported into your course.

Once they have, open your course and go to Modules in the left-hand navigation. The library module(s) you imported will appear in your list of modules.

If you want students to go through different items at different times in the course, you can drag these tutorials and quizzes to where you'd like them to appear.
