In this paper, we report on a case study in which we converted blended information literacy lectures into asynchronous distance lectures using the basic features of a learning management system. In the implementation of asynchronous distance lectures, it is necessary to maintain the learning activity of students and to achieve the same learning effect as in blended lectures. Preparing materials for asynchronous distance lectures from scratch is a heavy burden on the teacher. Therefore, we change the style and materials of the lectures based on the learning analysis of blended lectures that we have already practiced. We update the material, add quizzes with deadlines, and report on the results of asynchronous distance information literacy lectures. We then analyze and evaluate student learning to determine if this has been effective.
