In 2018, Victoria University had converted all its classes to a ‘blended learning’ format and was also implementing the Block structure for teaching. Starting with the First Year College, each subject was to be taught in 4-week blocks, and students undertook one subject at a time. This demanded a new way of structuring teaching and learning. A major concern by the executive management team was copyright compliance in a largely online environment later complicated with the onset of COVID-19. In response to these drivers the online interactive copyright training module, which uses interactive software to test the users’ learning, was developed.


Ingrid trained as a Librarian but has worked in the world of copyright for 20 years. She is currently working as the Copyright Officer at Victoria University where she liaises with Scholarly Information Librarians and academics to ensure copyright compliance within the university teaching environment. Ingrid joined the University in 2012 and very much enjoys her role; she has a Masters in Museum Studies and Cultural Policy which helps to guide some of her day to day work. Her past working experience was at Museum Victoria working with exhibition images.. In this online project she collaborated with a Learning Designer and Librarian to produce this interactive training module.
