Project Information Literacy Online Tutorial
What is PILOT?
Project Information Literacy Online Tutorial (PILOT) is a free, web-based information literacy tutorial created in Marick Learning's Learning Lite LMS.
Aligned with Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (ACRL, 2000) and modular in structure, PILOT includes interactive exercises, media, and self-testing as well as quizzes that can be graded.
With PILOT / Learning Lite, you get:
- A full-scale information literacy tutorial that you're free to customize
- A platform that even HTML novices can use to edit or build tutorials
- Easy-to-edit quizzes with emailable results
- Drag-and-drop questions that non-techies can create and edit
- Installation directions (docx)
- Teacher/developer manual (docx)
- Student/guest manual (docx)
- Diagram of the underlying database (pdf)
PILOT, which was originally Ferris State University's version of TILT, was completely rewritten in Summer 2011 using this new software. During 2014 more modules were added and the administrative interface was updated to facilitate moving from function to function more readily.
