C302: Research Genius: iOS App by Library & Faculty

11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Ben Rawlins, Director of Library Services, Georgetown College

With more and more students coming to its campus equipped with mobile devices, specifically iOS devices, Georgetown College wanted to develop a research tool that students could access with the tap of an icon. Working in collaboration with teaching faculty from three different departments (English, World Languages, and Graduate Education), an iOS application called Research Genius was developed. Comprised of three modules, Research Genius provides students with an introduction on what it means to do academic research, what is involved in the research process, and how to properly cite source and avoid plagiarism. Each module contains a pre- and post-quiz to help assess what students may know at the outset and what they have learned after completing the module. This presentation explores the different frameworks used to develop this app as well as plans for the app moving forward.
