How do I cite content from my online course? Create references in NoodleTools?

A sample reference and matching in-text citation for content from your Rasmussen traditional online course might look like this:


Rasmussen College. (n.d.). Module 05: Management skills. In B136/GEB1011: Introduction to
     business: Spring 2012 [Class lecture slide]. Retrieved from

Matching in-text citation:

According to Rasmussen College (n.d.), great managers have four main skills: technical, interpersonal, decision making, and conceptual.

We used NoodleTools to create the reference and citation above. Here is how we did it:

  1. Login to your NoodleTools account.
  2. Create a project or use a pre-existing project.
  3. Click on the Sources tab.
  4. Click on + Create New Citation.
  5. Choose the Website tab.
  6. Select Webpage from the dropdown menu.
  7. Fill in the information required about your course page.
    • Enter the general BlackBoard Learn URL: OR Engage URL: in URL textbox
    • Use the name of your course in the Name of the Web site section, and the quarter as the subtitle
      • Example: B136/GEB1011: Introduction to business: Spring 2014
    • Use Rasmussen College in the Group author section
    • Use n.d. (for no date) in the Date of e-publication section
    • Use the name of the module and the section name in the Web page or document/article title section
      1. Example: Module 05: Management skills
  • Click on Submit.
