EndNote Desktop X7 for Windows PC Lessons 1 - 4 (Zip files for Moodle)

EndNote Desktop X7 for Windows PC Lessons 1 - 4 (Zip files for Moodle)

Overview

This is part 1 of a series of online exercises designed to demonstrate and allow students to practice what we consider the most useful, general functions of desktop EndNote for Windows. The online lessons and descriptive titles can be found in the Resources section, on the right side of your screen.

Part 1 is focused on starting a new reference library and adding references from commonly used academic databases like OvidSP and CINAHL.

Each lesson contains:

  • general instructions describing what the student can expect to see
  • specific learning objectives
  • a main menu screen allowing them to choose between the demonstration and the practice exercise
  • the demonstration's duration time

The demonstration part of each lesson:

  • is narrated by the author
  • is not interactive includes text captions

The practice part of each lesson:

  • is not narrated contains more limited text prompts in place of detailed instructions
  • is interactive

These lessons were created using Adobe Captivate 9 and published in HTML5 format, designed to be dropped into Moodle and used as HTML files. No grading or progress tracking is included in these lessons.

They can be seen in action on KEATS (keats.kcl.ac.uk), the bespoke version of Moodle in use at King's College London. KEATS is not public, so please contact the authors for guest access or furher information regarding these lessons.
