For those who think in a visual way, such as art and design students, navigating the text-based world of information can be daunting, so the Glasgow School of Art decided to develop some online modules to teach information skills. Duncan Chappell explains the background to the InfosmART project and the many benefits arising from it.

What's Inside:

InfosmART is a portfolio of online learning modules in information and research skills specifically designed for the Glasgow School of Art’s learning, teaching and research communities. For many art and design students, information skills and aptitudes do not come as second nature so, with the ability to undertake self-directed research being an increasingly important skill in the knowledge economy, InfosmART was developed to equip all students with the transferable information skills that are attractive to employers in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
