Spreading the message: teaching music librarianship by distance learning
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractA course in music librarianship has been offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for many years. However, it is only since 2008 that the course has been offered online. The move from a traditional classroom environment to an online one raises several pedagogical and practical issues, some of which are discussed in the present article. The technology used to deliver courses online from the University of Illinois is also examined, and some information is also provided about the use of online course management software to deliver music librarianship courses at the University of Aberystwyth (UK). An increase in the number of courses offered online in this way will,one hopes, lead to greater course enrolment by students.
