TILT - Texas Information Literacy Tutorial

TILT - Texas Information Literacy Tutorial This is a nice information literacy tutorial. It has a straight content version as well as a media rich version that requires plug-ins. What is really great is that there is an Open License for this tutorial. This means you can take TILT and create you own version of it for your students. You can keep it as it is and place your own name on it or change what you don't like. This a great and a wonderful way to share an information literacy resource.
