The Learning: In Our Own Words video series was created by Norda Majekodunmi and Kent Murnaghan, York University Libraries.

We are grateful to our first year students who agreed to have us follow them throughout their first year at York University.

We would like to thank the York University Learning Technology Services crew (led by David Gibson and Bob McKenzie) for their direction, editing services and ultimately, making our creative vision a reality. We would also like to thank Grant McNair (York University Instructional Technology Services) for filming our students.

We would also like to thank our colleagues from the York University Libraries for support and funding of this project.
