This presentation will illustrate how two instructional design librarians tackled teaching the drab topic of plagiarism and elevated it to a fabulous online tutorial.  Participants will gain insight into the techniques used to move online instruction from clicking an arrow to get to the next screen and multiple choices quizzes to an enhanced active learning experience that challenges pre-existing thought and builds knew knowledge and skills. Learn how instructional design practices, storyboards, proof of concepts, and technology combine to elevate the online learning experience by giving learners the opportunity to interact with tutorial content through the use of "You Try" activities that incorporate drag and drop exercises, animated video, sequencing activities and more. The presenters will also discuss how this online tutorial is being used to enhance course curriculum by integrating it into the platforms that faculty are using, from static web pages to course management systems.
