Faculty Services: Additional Direct Links

This page lists a variety of library services for faculty, such as instruction requests, purchase requests, and individual consultations.

About this page

The links on this page can be copy and pasted into Talon course content, or may be emailed directly to students. However, if you plan on assigning any quizzes, we recommend the LTI linking method instead.

Direct Links for Credo Instruct Tutorial Modules

Direct links to specific Credo Instruct modules can be pasted into Talon course content, or can be emailed directly to students. Please note: if you plan on assigning and grading the tutorial quizzes, we recommend the LTI Linking method instead.

Directions for inserting Direct Links into Talon:

1) It's best to have 3 tabs open on your browser: this page, Talon, and the Credo Instruct website. Start by selecting the tutorial, video, or quiz you want to use on the Credo Instruct site.

2) On this page, locate the link for that tutorial by scrolling down, or search this page for the name of the tutorial by typing Ctrl+F. Highlight and copy the link.

3) On Talon, go to the location in your Course Content where you want the tutorial to be linked. Click Upload/Create, then choose "Create a Link". Fill in the title of the tutorial, then paste the link you previously copied.

OR: If you just want to share a link via email, follow steps 1 and 2, then paste into a message. These links work just like any URL, and will prompt students to enter their k number and password to access.
