COPPUL Animated Tutorials Sharing Project

COPPUL (the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries) has initiated an Animated Tutorials Sharing Project. From the web page:

About the Animated Tutorial Project

Over the years, libraries have witnessed a significant growth in their number of online resources; matched with an increasing demand for 24/7 information literacy. At the same time new software - that allows librarians to capture Search Screens and insert audio and/or text - means that librarians can quickly create highly professional Animated Tutorials.

Recognizing that creating and updating Tutorials for each online resource is a daunting task for any library to undertake on its own, librarians in COPPUL got together to find a way to share in their development. This project is an outgrowth of that initiative and our goal is to create a critical mass of Open Source Tutorials for online resources used by libraries everywhere. Participation in the project is both welcome and essential to it's success. So please to join us in an initiative that we hope will greatly benefit library users everywhere!

Thanks to several COPPUL people for this info.
