PILOT – Path to Information Literacy Online Tutorial – is a new online library tutorial that helps students learn the information literacy skills critical to their success, including:
- Choosing research topics
- Identifying information sources
- Searching LOIS (Library catalog)
- Using periodical databases to find articles
- Searching the Web
- Citation and plagiarism
PILOT consists of six self-contained modules. Instructors can direct their students to one or more of the modules at any time during the semester.
Each PILOT module comes with a self-grading quiz at the end for students to gauge their progress. When students choose an answer to a question, they will see feedback explaining why their choice is correct or incorrect.
Students can email their quiz results to their instructors, allowing instructors to easily monitor their students’ progress in the tutorial.
