The MLA released today an online course to teach students the scope and purpose of the MLA International Bibliography and how to use it effectively for college-level research.
Each of the five units in the course presents a lesson, followed by progression questions to reinforce the lesson through active engagement with the bibliography, and a quiz.
Students will receive a badge upon passing each quiz and a course completion badge upon completing all of the lessons and passing all five quizzes.
The course usually takes students 90 minutes or less to complete and requires access to the MLA International Bibliography through the institution’s library. For access to the course and related lesson plans and ideas for integrating the course into class curricula, visit the Teaching Resources on the MLA Style Center, or go straight to the course to create a free account and start earning badges.
(The current course is designed for use with the MLA International Bibliography from EBSCO. Versions designed for the bibliography on ProQuest and on Gale are planned.)
