Abstract

Sydney eLearning provides project management and educational design support to faculties for strategic elearning projects and supports individual staff and their students through the central elearning helpdesk. Projects are selected in a consultative and competitive process according to faculty priorities and are then resourced by members of the central elearning team. This session will describe how the University of Sydney manages the strategic projects process, some of the issues that have arisen throughout this process over the last 4 years and solutions to these issues. It will also outline the Application to Activate process carried out by the central elearning helpdesk at the beginning of each semester. The Application to Activate process is unique in Australia as an elearning quality assurance strategy. Before each semester academics must submit any WebCT unit of study that they wish students to have access to the Sydney eLearning team for checking. Each unit is checked for technical problems and copyright compliance before students are given access.
