General information

The overall project of which this site is part, "Expanding Language and Learning Support for Students", was awarded Monash Strategic Innovations funding 2005-2006. Language and Learning Online is the major website in a suite of sites designed to complement face-to-face forms of language and learning support for students at Monash University.

The development of the suite of sites was undertaken by the project team and Language and Learning staff of the Centre for Learning and Teaching Support (CeLTS), then the Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT), Monash University, under the direction of Associate Professor Rosemary Clerehan.

LLOnline represents a redevelopment and expansion of the Online Student Resource Centre and Writing in Subject Areas sites originally created between 1999 and 2001 by Language and Learning staff, led by Associate Professor Clerehan with Jill Turnbull as the Project Manager.

LLOnline and some of the new student sites contain updated versions of the original material developed by Language and Learning staff for the predecessor sites, but all of the new sites display significant innovation in design; expansion and/or creation of content; and enhancement in navigation, usability, and interactivity.
