Comments

This presentation examines the key outcomes of a 2013 pilot project that delivered online, synchronous IL sessions to new undergraduates across the University of Toronto. Unexpected outcomes emerged, suggesting gaps in our understanding of new undergraduates' expectations for online library instruction. We discuss the logistics of setting up an online course, address the successes and shortcomings of the project, and put forward next steps for exploring synchronous online IL initiatives.
