Supporting Student-Led Content Creation in the Distance Learning Environment with LibGuides CMS
Journal of Library and Information Services in Distance Learning
By supporting student profiles, blogs, content curation, and HTML and scripting projects, Springshare’s LibGuides CMS provides a flexible platform for student-led content creation in the distance learning environment. This paper describes how two librarians at Georgia Southern University opened up LibGuides CMS to host collaboratively developed course content and student-created work grounded in metaliteracy concepts embedded in the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Faculty and students were invited onto the platform as content creators, while librarians provided instruction and technical support. Practical, pedagogical, and technical considerations for supporting student-led content creation are discussed, including implementation, access control, and student privacy.
