InfoTrack is the online training platform in information literacy of the University of Geneva Library (searching for and selecting documents, sharing and using information ethically). It is aimed primarily at undergraduate students in all disciplines.
What’s innovative about this training is the choice of video as the teaching medium. It is also structured in independent modules that give you great freedom and flexibility. This training is built as a series of 24 video episodes that illustrate student experiences related to the information literacy skills needed to successfully complete work required for your university studies.
All of the platform’s content (videos, quizzes, and articles) is available in both French and English.Read more...
Each module includes a three-minute educational (and entertaining) video, a summary of the lesson’s key points, and a short self-assessment quiz. Some modules also include extra resources for further study. With InfoTrack you can:
- master key skills through self-study
- evaluate your skills by taking a level test
- save your quiz results and keep track of your progress on your personal dashboard.
Each module takes about 10 minutes to complete.
You will need roughly 4 hours to complete all 24 training modules. You can also use InfoTrack modules as a teaching tool in the classroom.
