Monash University Library works in partnership with other areas of the University to strengthen the research and education agenda. A key component of the Library’s contribution is to students’ development of information research and learning skills. Learning material is delivered in a multitude of ways. Developing capability of Library staff is equally important, enabling the Library to contribute effectively to University strategies, including those related to teaching and learning. This paper presents an evaluation of an online course designed for Library staff to develop their capability to create e-learning materials for students. Results suggest the approach was effective whilst identifying areas for improvement.
