How to orientate theological students to academic study? Since 2001, the library at Carey Baptist College has been providing information literacy programs and quizzes that are worth 5% of the course work for students. From formal to informal training sessions, the aim was to assist students to be familiar with the library resources. Unfortunately, it only addresses the library skills and the formal sessions were only for onsite students. Therefore, the distance students were left out.

The birth of First Steps a €“ Carey Essentials" went live in the beginning of 2018. All new students were enrolled to do this course and it is a requirement for them to complete the course within the semester. This self-paced course integrates study and library skills into Moodle, which is an open source learning management system. It is monitor by library staff. The course is based on the just in time€ model to learning. Creativity and making it interesting were some of the core requirements. This paper will highlight the content and the use of technology in the course. It will also address the challenges and the changes after consultation with the students.
