The following is a list of links to Information Studies Department Researchers, Faculty and Student projects that are available for your review.

The Project:

Video Tutorials Produced in the course of Internship (IST 668) available on RPI Library Website

These video tutorials were created by a student intern at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).  The tutorials are currently displayed on RPI’s library website for all students and faculty to access.  Outside users seeking instruction in the use of the featured databases can also find these tutorials via Web search engines. 

The Students:

To create them, the student used Camtasia, a screen-capture software employed by many private and public organizations.  As a result of the student’s work, RPI chose to purchase this software to use in future tutorial creation.  Screenshots of the two tutorials are below.

The link below is to a sample of a personal page. This was an assignment for IIST535, Web Database Programming. The assignment was to create a simple HTML webpage that included headings and a photograph. Katy was very creative using a scrolling page.
