A sustainable approach to in-house eLearning resource development: a case study

Abstract

This paper describes the in-house re-development and evaluation of an existing online resource that supports students throughout their academic learning journey. The Monash University Library Research and Learning Online (RLO) project incorporated a number of eLearning development practices, as well as devising suitable procedures for completing eLearning projects, within its complex work environment. The evaluation described in this paper suggests that the project was largely successful, with contributing features such as templates, examples, workshops, collaboration and retreats that also enabled professional learning. Recommendations were made both on improving the project and for others seeking professional development inspirations in similar situations.
