Description

As online instruction becomes more widespread, librarians will need to understand how to create effective web-based learning resources that can be accessed by students at any time. Although short video tutorials and traditional library web guides have a decades-long history, this presentation will focus on how to create interactive text-based resources that are part game and part self-serve instruction session. Rather than discussing 'gamification,' the presentation will explore Interactive Fiction (IF), a genre of text-based games, and will provide attendees with practical tools and tips to create their own interactive resource.

At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

* articulate how interactive web-based resources can increase students' engagement and capacity to learn
