Description

The Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) supports an Instruction Team made up of representatives from member libraries. One of the duties of the team is to create and present workshops and forums on topics of interest to instruction/reference librarians throughout the consortium. The Instruction Team has presented four well-received Online Tutorial Creation Workshops using “Wink” software. The workshops include sessions on best practices of tutorial creation, analysis of both good and bad tutorials available online, time for scriptwriting and storyboarding, a presentation of the Wink software used for creating tutorials, and practice screencasting using Wink. While workshop participants have gone on to develop Wink tutorials for end users, related to the Voyager OPAC, CARLI consortium staff have begun a series of Wink tutorials for library staff, related to SFX administration. Using Wink for both end users and library staff is an effective method to present brief tutorial demonstrations for frequently asked questions. Our presentation will be a condensed version of our Online Tutorial Creation Workshop: we will include a brief demonstration of Wink, an overview of what does and does not work well in a Wink tutorial, and hints for success based on our experience using Wink.
