In 2013, the University of Melbourne offered its first MOOCs via Coursera. The technology enabled seven courses taught by academic staff from different disciplines to be delivered to anyone with an internet connection. The Library was included as part of the MOOCs development team from the start, collaborating with teaching staff through the hectic development phase, forging positive relationships with learning designers and production staff. This paper presents a case study that demonstrates the contribution that the Library has made to MOOCs@Melbourne.
