Distance Education Faculty Services
Faculty teaching Distance Education courses at Mason also have access to a variety of helpful library services and resources to meet the unique needs of teaching online. Whether you are new to online education or have taught online for years, the library has content, collections and services that can enhance your course and make your life easier.
View the list of all Library Skills Tutorials which faculty can link to from within Blackboard or contact me for a customized tutorial.
In addition, I can simulate an instruction session by providing a prerecorded typical library instruction session via Bb Collaborate that is tailored to your course and your student’s assignment.
