      • Toolbox Structure - Delivery
      • Most Toolboxes have been designed around a metaphor for the learning environment, for example a virtual hair salon, a virtual child care centre or a virtual office.
      • Generally, there are two distinctly separate components of a Toolbox:
      • content ( the actual teaching and learning material, generally web pages )
      • resources ( a range of documents and/or multimedia resources that support the content )
    • Introduction to Toolboxes
      • Purchasing Toolboxes
      • Toolboxes cost approximately AUD$400. Each Toolbox comes with a teacher guide and installation booklet, and can be customised to suit different learner or workplace training needs.
      • Toolboxes can be copied and distributed within a RTO or workplace free of charge, provided they are not on-sold for commercial gain or made publicly available
    • Introduction to Toolboxes
