Showcasing our digital literacy video series
For several years the Learning and Teaching Team, alongside the Digital Experience team, have been engaging animated videos that explore a range of ideas related to digital literacy.
Hosted on YouTube, our Digital Literacy playlist includes videos to help students understand what digital literacy is, how it applies in the workplace, and tips and advice to improve specific digital literacy skills. At the start of 2022, the library’s Digital Experience and Communications teams planned a new display and communications campaign highlighting the range of engaging and informative videos.
While these videos have previously been promoted through resource guides, blogs and social media, this new display was intended to make the resources more publicly visible. The team also considered that being the start of Trimester 1, and with many students back on campus either for the first time or after a long break, this was the kind of information many students would be seeking. It is a good opportunity to engage them with useful content that not only answers their questions, but points them in the direction of other library services and support.
The project includes six displays each referencing a different video and a bookend that provides more information and a QR code linking to the full YouTube playlist.
About the display
This display was designed to:
- Showcase our digital literacy video content
- Give students visibility of these resources at a time that is pertinent to their studies (that is, Week 5 Trimester 1 – a time when many students are beginning their first major assessment tasks and getting into the detail of their course following the orientation/getting started period)
- Act as an access point to our Digital Literacy video playlist so that students can immediately access and watch video content from their own device
