This paper describes how Monash University Library created an online learning copyright resource for university staff as an artefact of an in-house blended learning course. The Copyright Module was developed through library staff collaboration and transference of skills. The team undertook continuous evaluation from multiple perspectives to inform the design, development and implementation of the module. Through this multi-dimensional approach, the team was able to create prototype activities for the module and use them to create other resources by involving the target audience in decisions about the module’s improvement. This process has led to a template of design principles for future work on this module, making it a sustainable model for in-house development of other online learning resources.
