Extended Abstract

This panel discussion style session will be lead by librarians and faculty from different types of institutions and disciplines. Each person on the panel will discuss and share ways they use the MERLOT learning objects in classroom settings. Different ways that Content Builder and SoftChalk are used to create learning content will also be discussed, with examples shown.

The goal of the session is to share different ways MERLOT can be used. We want to create an atmosphere that is not too formal so that we can all "chat", and learn something new about MERLOT that we did not know before. This session will help those attending better understand, utilize and promote MERLOT back on their home campuses.
