The aim of this paper is to share the processes in revitalizing the courseware of the course, MEC3204 Production Engineering coded as, in the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical), Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Mechanical) and Associate Degree in Engineering (Mechanical) programs offered by the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), a regional Australian University with excellence in developing e-learning [1]. The paper describes how the authors review the courseware of the course. The needs for the review are also explained. The lecture and tutorial schedule as well as the assessments of the course were also studied and revised. The authors also estimated the costs involved in reviewing the course. At the same time, the paper also predicts the benefits that will be offered to students and the community including employers who are going to employ USQ graduates. It is finally concluded that the review is worthwhile and the actual costs to the university are minimal.
