Abstract The drive for externalisation and the development of online learning resources is a major challenge faced by many Australian universities. A particularly demanding undertaking is the development of multipurpose online resources that can be used for different purposes in a variety of contexts. For this to be successful a significant cultural change within universities is indicated. Rather than working in isolation, academic staff will need to share issues, discuss practice, and bring about increasing levels of transparency and accountability. In this investigation of a specific online learning project, a qualitative research based approach - Soft Systems Methodology - is used to undertake an issues analysis to better understand the capability of the university community to acquire and manage the knowledge required to successfully adopt innovative teaching technologies. The transformation into a learning organisation is a key process of successful knowledge management that this study will seek to identify and understand. Identifying the activity-based issues in adapting organisational culture to ensure that it does not become a barrier to learning and other knowledge management processes is a key outcome of this study.
