Abstract
In a determined effort to preserve the Modern Greek language as an important part of Australia’s cultural and linguistic diversity, the Logos Australian Centre for Hellenic Language and Culture established at Flinders University in South Australia in 2011 has been enhancing the delivery of Modern Greek and enabling a wider delivery of this small enrolment language by developing online content and an effective model for delivery via synchronous and asynchronous technologies. Six Modern Greek language topics, two cultural topics and some extension materials have been developed and delivered online via the university’s learning management system known as Flinders Learning Online (FLO).
