Our first product is a turnkey package of materials enabling your library to host the Digital Literacy Contest with very little effort.
University libraries host the DLC in university computer labs. Competitors logon to our web-based contest and have 30 minutes to answer 20 questions using the Internet (e.g., “How many images were in U.S. patent #2393676 by Buckminster Fuller?”). Correct answers are worth one point; incorrect answers are penalized by one point. The highest total score wins.
It includes everything your library needs to host the DLC successfully.
Benefits to your library:
