Teaching support for distance education courses

Whether you are teaching a wholly Internet-based course or a correspondence course, the reality is that you won’t be seeing much of your students. Although they may be registered in other traditional or hybrid courses, and have physical access to York’s libraries, they may just as easily be enrolled in your course from another province or even another continent. Some important information on how you can help your students make use of our collections and services even if they can’t visit the campus personally is included below:

What we offer now:

What we can also work with you to produce:

  • a course-related research guide can be created by your subject librarian. This can be used to highlight how the library can help with research for key assignments in your course(s). Take a look here to see the list that exists right now.
  • instruction sessions using chat reference/conferencing software

For further information on any of these services, please contact the E-Learning librarian, Sarah Coysh, Tel: 416 736 2100 ext. 88317.
