Claremont Colleges Library Librarians Answer Reference Questions With Text Messages - Wired Campus For a student who doesn’t want to swing by the reference desk, there are plenty of other ways to ask a librarian a question—instant messaging, e-mail, a phone call. And now, on a growing number of campuses, students can ask questions with text messages. Oregon State University is among the institutions that have recently added “text a librarian” services. Students text a question to an advertised number during library hours, and an alert appears on the computer screen of any librarian who is signed into the library’s instant-messaging service. Margaret Mellinger, an assistant professor and engineering librarian at Oregon State, said the library staff expected that students would ask only questions with quick, simple answers. “We weren’t thinking that they were going to ask serious research questions,” Ms. Students have also asked about checking out laptop computers and locating library books.

Elle permet aux enseignants de questionner les élèves par le biais de questions à choix multiples. L’enseignant doit se doter de l'application « hôte » de eClicker (25 $) pour pouvoir envoyer les questions aux élèves. Quelques jours avant de vivre l’activité en classe, M. Martel avait donc demandé à ses élèves de lui soumettre des questions à choix multiples sur la langue française en général ; une trentaine de questions qu’il avait ensuite intégrées dans son application hôte. Finalement, la journée de l’activité, M. Regroupés en équipe, les élèves avaient 15 secondes pour répondre à chaque question. Une fois le questionnaire complété par tous, il a pu s’envoyer l’ensemble des résultats par courriel. « Je n’ai jamais vu personne répondre à des questions de français avec autant d’enthousiasme », ajoute-t-il. L’enseignant a définitivement aimé l’expérience et il souhaite bien recommencer.
