Limited Capacity seats available

Providing a platform for community created content has become a focus for Richmond Public Library to both ensure that our community has a way to share their creative and intellectual work, and to ensure that information and content from our programming remains accessible long after the actual programs themselves have completed.  To achieve this, RPL has introduced a new digital platform called Create & Learn. This session will go over why Richmond decided to use the Active Textbooks system to build Create & Learn, and demonstrate how this new tool works. We will provide examples of Create & Learn documents, and ways in which it has been used at Richmond Public Library – not only as a tool for the public, but also for staff. An overview of the successes, challenges, and future of Create & Learn will also be discussed, as the possibilities of what our community will create and share are endless!
