Learning Resources in FLO: How do you select, provide, or create a variety of learning resources?

Each Semester, as you plan and review your FLO sites, you are undertaking the significant and important task of selecting, providing, or creating a variety of learning resources.

Whilst learning resources can refer to a broad range of content and materials used in learning and teaching, in the context of a FLO site they can be:

  • original content developed by Flinders staff
  • materials created by a third party, created outside of Flinders University and selected and used by the Topic Coordinator as part of the topic resources
  • academic support resources, for example those created by SLSS, the Library and Careers
  • content or resources shared by students

To support diverse ways of learning and the Digital Learning Guidelines (see Guideline 4. Learning Resources), you can include a range of different formats of learning resources in FLO sites.

Some examples of Learning Resources in FLO are:

  • Books and book chapters, Articles
  • Videos and streamed media
  • Websites and grey literature
  • News
  • Data
  • Simulations
  • Physical objects (art, artefacts)
  • Digital objects (images, animations, audio, pre-recorded video)
  • Special collections

A new tip sheet Learning Resources in FLO is available to help you to get started.

The tip sheet covers how to find relevant resources, getting help to find relevant resources, how to help students to navigate your learning resources and some of the considerations if you decide to create your own learning resources.
