  • Eric Kunnen, Grand Rapids Community College


Undergraduate adult hybrid class

Undergraduate Adult (Hybrid) Class

  • Two assignments:

    • Find 5 college websites with course catalog descriptions

    • Find 1 good article in your experiential discipline and annotate

  • Provided clearly written instructions with screenshots

  • Easy with Course tool


Adult hybrid class

Adult Hybrid Class

  • In spite of being good computer users, the adult students were slower to adopt it than graduate students

  • First assignment was slow, several questions, and they were pretty unsure of themselves

  • The second assignment was much better and was even turned in early.


Graduate online class

Graduate Online Class

  • Find qualified resources that could be used as an online education administrator and annotate

  • Provided same handout

  • Students caught on quickly and are really enjoying sharing resources

  • Use resources for final project support

Grcc plans for the future

GRCC – Plans for the future…

Leverage the power of Scholar to:

1) Provide our Librarians with an easy way to bring in some valuable resources directly into courses to share with students and faculty.

2) Encourage students to "add to" the body of knowledge in a course and share with each other.

3) Share resources and content collections with other universities and colleges on Scholar.

4) Provide students, faculty, and staff with the skills of academic social networking, bookmarking, and online tool usage with a key quality of the discernment of online resources.

5) Enhance faculty productivity, disciplinesearching/sharing, and course resource integration.

6) Improve collaboration for groups, teams, research groups, committees to share and categorize resources.

7) Increase awareness for individuals in using Scholar to easily store, access, collect, share, discover, tag, classify, and sort resources…
