1 Cloning Ourselves: One Librarian’s Experience Judith A. Downie California State University San Marcos LOEX, San Diego, CA May 4, 2007

2 Instruction Trends Library instruction pedagogy has moved from library skills to course- integrated and information-literate focus  Many more sources, methods and tools are being taught  Supports student retention, especially in the first year 12-16% growth in academic enrollment between (Gerald & Hussar, 2000)  Instruction requests have increased  Scheduling conflicts 0% growth in Academic Librarian positions between (OOQ, Winter , pg. 9) Access issues  Distance education  Our users want anytime/anywhere  Equitable technologies “Victims of our own success”

3 Options? STOP Give up other tasks Too much instruction? Too many other duties? Turn down requests Hire more Librarians Redistribute or reschedule requests

4 My trial solutions Asked myself, what do students want/need? I considered SShortening the one-shot—two visits in one class period relying on comprehensive web page ‘‘Teaching the teacher’ I trialed CCombined course sections HHelp from colleagues CCloning myself

5 Possible cloning options Tutorials  Text based, some screen shots Webinars  Real time interactive (may be archived for future use) Webcast  One-way presentation that can be archived for referral

6 Cloning with Mediasite Web video presentation tool (webcast) Multiple modalities Free access for end user On demand--anytime, anywhere There are alternatives…  Low cost (Powerpoint with voiceover)  Fee-based (commercial providers)

7 Why Mediasite? Campus choice  Asynchronous distance learning in traditional teaching arrangement  Provider reputation for reliability  Low labor costs for post-production No cost to library as a campus-wide purchase Opportunity for collaboration  Faculty/faculty  Faculty/librarians  Librarians/IT staff

8 CSUSM’s Mediasite space

9 Mediasite at CSUSM

10 Mediasite elements

11 Positives Available to the end user without additional software Aids in learning retention Easy to learn and manipulate Modular segments to mix and match Can be set up in classrooms or dedicated studio IITS support Embraced by many classroom faculty Burn to a CD or load the audio to an I-Pod

12 Issues for librarians Dependent on others for certain services Scheduling space and personnel Limited interactivity How to measure effectiveness? Availability through web can be a double- edged sword

13 Functional limitations ‘Real Estate’ Editing Preparation time Connection speed for user Unable to measure use Access and use without creator’s knowledge Some features are not intuitive nor readily visible

14 Assessment Assessment of learning OR evaluation of instruction? Integrated into the CSUSM IL Program from the beginning Promoted by WASC and other accrediting bodies Limited ability through Mediasite’s poll function Use a separate survey tool  Self-created survey  Commercial tool

15 Mediasite Poll Questions are T/F, Y/N, or multiple choice Must take poll in order to view results Simple-to-read results

16 Viewing poll results

17 Survey Monkey Purchased by the library Professional research as well as student assessment Anonymous and automatic data collection Web-based, anytime, anywhere Create a URL to link to your survey Easy to learn Download and manipulate data using Excel

18 SurveyMonkey

19 My results to date Minus  Room for refinement of presentation  Some segments are too long  High-speed connection a must  Low use of evaluation tool Plus  Meets faculty need for instruction  Appeals to students  Re-usable  Saves time later

20 Tips Design  Keep date-free  KISS and TEST! Recording  Design short segments  Practice and time yourself  Prepared screen shots Incorporate interactivity  Pose questions to promote attention  Use the poll feature  Guided notes or fill-in worksheet to accompany

21 My conclusions Successful  Student outreach  Faculty and IITS collaboration Not for every instructional situation Has been a time-saver Include and promote assessment tool Work with classroom faculty to assess learning

22 Future considerations User  ADA compliance  Faculty and student acceptance  Compare effectiveness with first-years to upper-division or discipline-based vs. general Back-end  Copyright  Classroom Management Systems  Impact of upgrades or new versions Tools  Podcasting  Additional tools

23 Thank you! Enjoy the conference… and any future cloning Judith A. Downie CSUSM Mediasite: Bibliography of resources:
