eLearning and Online Learning

The Melbourne CSHE has a group of staff whose primary focus is on the use of technology by staff and students in higher education, including the University's Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education Innovation) who leads the University's digital strategy. 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 Centre also works closely with Chancellery and Learning Environments in the support of research and development of eLearning and Online Learning at The University of Melbourne.
