The Library recently launched Help yourself, our new online learning resource which will replace Leap into Learning from the end of Semester 2, 2018.
Designed to introduce information finding concepts and promote lifelong learning, Help yourself will equip students with the skills to find, evaluate and use information throughout their lives.
A different way of learning online
Help yourself is different to Leap into Learning, but will still provide all the benefits of an online learning tool.
It is publicly accessible on the Library website, allowing simple, 24/7 and mobile-friendly access to the resources.
With three easy to navigate sections Help yourself allows your students to find the information they need, when they need it.
Rather than a series of modules or a hurdle task for assessment, Help yourself encourages self-directed and point-of-need learning for your students.
What you need to know
Leap into Learning will be removed from LEO at the end of Semester 2 2018 and replaced with Help yourself.
After 23 November, 2018 you will no longer be able to use Leap into Learning as a hurdle task in your units.
You will also need to remove any reference to Leap into Learning in unit outlines circulated after 23 November.
Help yourself is not an assessment tool. Students will not gain a certificate of completion when they undertake Help yourself.
All the information currentlyin Leap into Learning will still be available to your students, just in a different format. We’ve worked hard to map the content from Leap into Learning to our new resource.
Help your students with Help yourself
Help yourself is simply a great resource to use if you want to help your students understand critical information concepts.
Use it in your classes and online, and recommend it to your students as a starting point for assignment research.
