eLearning and Online Learning

The CSHE has a group of staff whose primary focus is on the use of technology by staff and students in higher education. The Director of eLearning, who is based in the CSHE, developed the University's eLearning strategy which was endorsed in March 2012. A number of initiatives have been introduced based on this strategy including Learning and Teaching Initiatives, the eLearning Professional Development Framework and the University's partnership with Coursera in the delivery of Massive Open Online Courses.

The CSHE works closely with Melbourne Students and Learning and Learning Environments in the support of research and development of eLearning and Online Learning at The University of Melbourne.
