Lesson 1: Logging in and Creating a Project
OBJECTIVE: TO CREATE A PROJECT AND SHARE IT WITH YOUR TEACHER
STEP 1: Log in to NoodleTools by clicking on the icon below. You only need to be logged in to your grsu14 Google account to log in. Note: you may be asked to enter your initials an a four digit phone number. This is for verification purposes at a later time. Enter the information as directed and you will be able to proceed.
STEP 2: Watch the video playlist to the right. The video titled "The Basics of NoodleTools" will give you an overview of how to create a project and it will lead you through the features of the program. Follow the steps to "Create a Project." You DO NOT NEED to set up notecards or a works cited page yet. The lessons below will lead you through that process in greater depth.
WHEN CREATING A PROJECT USE MLA ADVANCED FOR YOUR CITATION SELECTIONS
The following videos in the playlist will review setting up a project and instruct you how to share that project with a teacher. Both of these steps need to be complete before your first library visit.
Lesson 2: Creating a Works Cited Page
OBJECTIVE: TO CREATE A WORKS CITED PAGE USING NOODLETOOLS
Watch the first video in the playlist on the right. It will provide an overview of how to create a works cited page using NoodleTools. The example they use will be citing an article from a journal. You can use the pull-down menu at the top of the works cited page to select alternate sources.
The next two videos in the playlist will tell you how to cite a book using WorldCat and how to use iCyte to archive and save webpages.
If you already have a formatted citation, you can save time by using the Quick Cite button. See the fourth video on the playlist to learn how this option works.
OBJECTIVE: TO USE NOTECARDS AND OUTLINE IN NOODLETOOLS TO ORGANIZE INFORMATION
The videos included on the Lesson 3 playlist will explain how to use the notecards and outline functions in NoodleTools. As soon as you are ready to take notes on a source, you should cite it and open a notecard to ensure your work will be stored with your project for future use.
The video playlist also covers how to create a paper in NoodeTools using your Google Apps account. This is a great way to keep all of your work for the project organized for both you and your teacher.
