This study aimed at developing an e-learning platform for UGC-NET/JRF (University Grants Commission-National Eligibility Test/Junior Research Fellowship) candidates in the field of Library and Information Science (LIS). At the initial stage, the content was developed according to the syllabus of UGC and, a jury of experts validated it. The Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) was used to integrate and deliver the e-content, and the portal was hosted on a separate website ( to ensure remote access. The study also addressed the need for e-learning in LIS and points out the scope and directions for future research.
