Identify Tutorials for Development Anyone wishing to participate in this initiative can consult a list of online resources identified as high priority for development. The list came about as a result of an online survey conducted of COPPUL libraries and contains:
- a listing of which electronic products (by which vendors) were most in use
- a listing of additional online resources - not included in the survey - which others have indicated are important for development.
- a listing of which online resources are currently being worked on by other librarians.
- Name of the E-Resource a tutorial is being designed for
- Name of the Vendor for the e-resource
- Your Name and Contact Information
- If you are working on an update to an existing tutorial
Note: The List's RSS feed will then notify others that someone has agreed to Adopt a Tutorial for a the e-resource you have selected.Once the Tutorial is completed:
- Go back to the Wiki and indicate that its is completed, or that you have updated a previous tutorial (including the date / version for the Tutorial)
- Go to D-Space and load the tutorial (to learn how to load the tutorial go to: Uploading Viewlets to the DSpace Shared Viewlet Database.)
- People using the List's RSS feed will be notified that you have completed or updated a tutorial.
- People who have taken the time to subscribe to D-Space will be told that there is new content at D-Space. (Instructions on Subscribing can be found at: Uploading Viewlets to the DSpace Shared Viewlet Database.)
- the basic content that everyone would naturally expect to see in a Tutorial. (i.e. remember to include a full record)
- important information on what information to include or exclude about accessing documents - dependant upon which features are included in different databases.
- some basic design elements that enable Tutorials to be exchanged readily (such as using standardized fonts and colors.)
- some practical advice on Animated Tutorial building (such as recommended viewing times for Tutorials, sequencing, context, etc.)
