|Tutorial on Information Retrieval
CALIS (Computer-Assisted Learning for Information Searching) is a tutorial on information retrieval and the use of scientific information in an academic environment.
CALIS was developed between 2001 and 2003 within the context of the Swiss Virtual Campus. The Haute école de gestion de Genève in French was in charge of the project and various partners, among which the SES Library, contributed to its creation. The maintenance phase extended right up to December 2006.
Since November 2005, the SES Library has been adapting a version of CALIS in order to meet the needs of the economic and social sciences. From now on it is in charge of maintaining and updating this version.
CALIS is designed for the students in economic and social sciences. It consists of theoretical modules comprising texts, demonstrations and examples, accompanied by exercises and material for self-assessment. Its objectives are to help its users:
- conduct efficient information searching for all academic works
- make correct and relevant use of the retrieved information
- write bibliographies according to scientific standards
Upon request, CALIS can be adapted to meet the needs of specific courses.
- Technical data
The teaching platform Moodle has been used to design CALIS, so that this tutorial offers all the distinctive facilities of e-learning: remote access, interactivity, self-assessment and progress at one's own rate of study.
