education.au(www.educationau.edu.au), is a national ICT agency for education and training, owned by the Australian and State and Territory education and training Ministers.
education.au collaborates with stakeholders in education and training communities working across the early childhood, schooling, vocational education and training, adult and community education, and university sectors. education.au can advise how new and emerging information and communication technologies (ICTs) facilitated by the Internet, can enhance both the way in which Australians learn and develop career pathways. We can then build and manage the systems you need to make it happen.
Our approach is to build the solution once for the benefit of many. This avoids duplication of effort and cost. It facilitates the sharing of knowledge. It builds reusable national assets in the form of e-infrastructure that lays a solid foundation for innovative teaching and learning.
