Recommended: LTI Link (a.k.a. External Learning Tool)
These links only work within Talon. Students will be automatically logged in once they are in Talon.
Use this method if you want to assign a tutorial only to certain students rather than your whole class.
Can be inserted into Talon or sent to students via email. If linked from Talon, students should be automatically logged in. Otherwise students need to enter their k number and password.
Can be inserted into Talon. If linked from Talon, students should be automatically logged in.
Quizzes & grading
Student quiz grades will be automatically entered into Talon gradebook, after initial setup.
Students will need to log in and provide instructor and course information. Students can email their quiz grades to themselves and/or their instructor, or instructors can contact librarian Kate Cameron to access a report for their students.
Same as for Direct Links (see description to the left).
For each link, embed code or LTI link, the content will show up separate from the rest of the tutorial. For example, if you select the link for a video, only that video will show in Talon, without navigation to the following tutorial module. If you select the link for a specific module, students will see the first page of that module and be able to navigate through all the pages of that module, and it will stop before they get to a quiz or get to the next module.
Credo Instruct FAQs
Q: Is there a way to know if a student has completed a tutorial?
A: Yes and no -- Credo doesn't have a specific way to know this, the only thing it tracks for an individual student is quiz scores. So including quizzes is the best way to know students at least understand the basic concepts of a tutorial.
Q: Can I assign a tutorial or quiz to a single student rather than my whole class?
A: Yes - the best way to do this is to email that student with direct links to the tutorials and/or quizzes you'd like them to complete. To get quiz results, contact Kate Hess at the Library to pull your student's score. You might instruct your student to be sure to fill out the form that appears before the quiz, asking for their name, the course, and their instructor's name, so that we can be sure to pull the right quiz results.
Q: I don't want to assign specific tutorials in my Talon, but I'd like students to know they can access these tutorials on their own if they need help. What link should I use?
A: There are 2 ways you could do this:
You could put the link to the Credo InfoLit homepage in your Talon: https://resources.kirkwood.edu/login?url=https://frame.credocourseware.com/courses/course-v1:Kirkwood-Community-College+IL-MOD+2018/course/. This will take students to a table of contents where they can browse and select content they wish to view.
You could link to the Kirkwood Library's LibGuides "Research Help" page. This contains a mixture of Kirkwood-created content and Credo InfoLit tutorials and videos, arranged in tabs according to the broad areas of research. The link is: http://guides.kirkwood.edu/research.
Q: Are there quizzes that cover Credo video content?
A: In most cases videos serve to introduce a topic; tutorials serve up the main content; and quizzes cover the tutorial content, but not the video content.
