Instructors can assign the KPU Library Research Tutorial as a badged option (self-enroll), or individual modules embedded into their courses (this option allows instructors to edit interactive materials such as the worksheet and H5P quizzes). Each module set also contains an optional worksheet that instructors may wish to assign in conjunction with the modules, whether badged or embedded.

To assign badged tutorial: 
We encourage you to link to the KPU Library Research Tutorial page as the page includes helpful information for students prior to taking them to the Moodle site.

Instructors may wish to incentivize completion of the tutorial with their students by providing bonus marks in the course or making it a requirement in their course. This tutorial typically takes students approximately 2 hours in total to complete. Since it can be a lot of information for students to process, especially of some of the research concepts are new to them, we recommend assigning the tutorial in sections.
