Common Core Connections Electronic Resources Challenge

Jan. 21 April 8, Online

The E-Resources Challenge is a self-paced learning opportunity that guides you to explore and discover content and features in the South Dakota State Librarys electronic resources. This time around, the State Library has something for beginners, school personnel, trustees and Challenge alumni with contact hours for each option.

Learn more about online journals, encyclopedias, practice tests and other resources while earning continuing education contact hours (see table below) all from the comfort of your own home or classroom. The 10-week course will examine one or two electronic resources per week. The first lesson will be released Jan. 21, 2013. You can start any time after that; however, the Challenge ends on April 8.
