ALIA Information Online 2017 Conference, 13-17 February 2017 Sydney: Data Information Knowledge
This conference paper discusses a project facilitated by the UTS Library to introduce online learning modules.
Abstract: In March 2016 UTS Library launched a series of online learning modules called HeadsUp, which was the culmination of a year of intensive work by librarians in the Information Services Department in collaboration with support and academic staff in the University. HeadsUp is a series of nine modules which are made up of short animations, screencasts and quizzes intended for students’ individual learning, as well as a tool academics can use for students’ formative learning. They cover a variety of academic literacies and study skills relevant to first year students. Rather than hiring someone external to make these modules, we decided to take a more ambitious DIY approach.
