Business research toolkit: The creation of an online, asynchronous business information literacy course

Academic Article


  • The Business Research Toolkit (BRT) is a free, noncredit-bearing course designed to serve students, faculty, and staff who are interested in learning more about the intricacies of business research. It began as a face-to-face course and evolved into an asynchronous, online course offered in the campus LMS. Transitioning the program to an online-only format required extensive planning and collaboration. This article describes the process of transitioning the toolkit online, answers common questions colleagues have about the toolkit, and provides strategies for practitioners to create similar programs at their institutions.
