The tutorial is clear and concise and provides a demonstration of the concept of scientific information life cycle
It is current and relevant.
It is self-contained, but is flexible enough to be used in several situations
The inclusion of citation information given provides too little data to be of use in this setting.
The definition of “grey literature” is not exactly accurate for government information.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This tutorial reinforces concepts progressively and builds on prior concepts.
• It demonstrates relationships between concepts.
• It is very efficient and users can learn a lot in a short amount of time.
• The use of matching and review questions is well done.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
Very easy to use and engaging, the slides are well designed with enough text, color , graphics and in some cases interactive questions to make this an interesting tutorial that will keep students interest.
Some familiarity with the scientific method is needed but even without that prior knowledge, this tutorial can be very helpful to students not enrolled in a science program.
Other Issues and Comments:
Other than the need for prerequisite knowledge of the scientific method and the use of university specific resources this is a well designed useful tutorial.
