Good Morning Instructors,

This week I'd like to discuss a great resource within Skillsoft that allows us to share brief expert lectures with our students; it is something called QuickTalks on Skillsoft's Learning Channel. These brief expert lectures are under 10 minutes in length (and often under 5 minutes in length) and can help to connect with our audio and visual learners.

First, click here to access the SkillPort log-in page. Your username and password should be the same: firstinitiallastname (i.e. jdoe). If you have any trouble logging in, contact the GEN Helpdesk. Then access Books 24X7 to search the Learning Channel repository. Click here to access a tutorial on navigating around the Learning Channel within Skillsoft.

If you have any questions on this resource, please let me know. And if you find a great QuickTalk to use in your online course(s), please let me know that as well!
