In this paper we present the outcomes of a project aimed to provide online support material to help students to become more familiar with the computer science honours program at The University of Newcastle. We discuss the motivation behind the decision to present the material via a learning management system. These systems are traditionally designed to deliver course material online. We propose a new use for learning management systems, whereby material is organized and presented to inform computer science students about the honours program and consequently give them extra encouragement to undertake the honours program. Additionally, for students that are already enrolled in the program, online support material is made available to help them during the course of their studies.
