Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article describes GCU’s interactive CINAHL tutorial and its evolution from a paper “work-through guide”. It is available on or off campus 24-7 and can be worked through as many times as required, providing access to training when the student needs it. The course uses split screen format, with a live session in the top screen and the step-by-step instructions in the bottom one. The article highlights the advantages and some of the disadvantages in using this type of tutorial. The format has been adapted to show Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Science Citation Index and Recal.
