LinkedIn Learning (previously called "Lynda.com") provides many different streaming video courses on a wide variety of software and educational topics, everything from time management skills to tips for Microsoft Office 365 to instructions for Canvas itself.
Current Green River students, faculty and staff have complete access to LinkedIn Learning through Holman Library. Videos - individual sections or entire courses - can be linked in Canvas.
In order to make logging in to the videos as easy as possible, librarians have created a template page in Canvas Commons which includes log-in instructions that you can import into your class and add video links you would like to share with your class.
Access feature films or documentaries for your hybrid or online class!
Kanopy films are available for faculty to request for their classes -- once a film is requested, you will work with your librarians to either link the film into your Canvas shell or arrange an in-class viewing (an option for hybrid classes). If you have questions about the process or availability of Kanopy films, please contact us at the library!
Note: In order to log-in to KCLS online items with a KCLS/GRC account, you will need to access the resources through the "KCLS for College Students" page (link below) or the KCLS database directly. The KCLS/GRC shared account log-in does not work to log in to the KCLS catalog or the "My KCLS" account on the libraries' website.
As part of the GRC community, you have access to King County Library System's (KCLS) online materials to compliment the academic research materials available at Holman Library.
You have the option of signing up to have access to KCLS online materials also. To opt-in, complete the online sign-up form on GatorNet (link below), and your account will be available the following Monday:
Many of our library resources for Canvas classes are available directly in Canvas Commons! This includes some of our popular handouts (CRAAP evaluation questions; citation quick guides); and our research modules for brainstorming topics, finding resources, and evaluating that you can import directly into your class.
Commons is available within Canvas, and the fastest way to locate HL resources is to search "Holman Library" in Commons. Even better-- any time the library updates a resource in Commons, you will be able to see the update in your Commons menu and update the resource in your class shell easily!
If you would like to offer your students an online version of our introduction to citations and using the NoodleTools citation management tool, it is available as a self-paced Canvas course. Just add a link to the workshop in your class-no special enrollment needed.
Looking for short videos to introduce research concepts such as brainstorming, evaluating information, or using library tools like databases and the catalog to find sources? Check out our tutorial videos guide!
Most of the tutorial videos are YouTube videos and can be linked to or embedded in Canvas classes.
A link to Holman Library is automatically available from all Canvas classrooms. Use the information on this page to learn more about using the library in Canvas, to customize where the library appears in your Canvas classroom, to add your class research guide and other library resources to your Canvas classroom, and to upload information literacy content to your Canvas classroom.
