Faculty Services

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

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 2 tabs open on your browser: this page, and Talon. Start by scrolling through the listed tutorials, videos, and quizzes. Click on any of them to view in a new window. 

2) When you find one you want to use, close that window to return to this page. Highlight and copy the whole URL that appears after the hyperlinked title.

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 URL you previously copied.

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