E-standards for Training The Framework’s E-standards for Training business activity has a total of $80,000 available for up to 6 projects for registered training organisations (RTOs) to trial emerging technologies that may have wider applications in the national training system. focused on developing national standards to underpin essential e-learning infrastructure, conducting research into new technology areas and providing guidance materials and tools to support the effective use of emerging technologies.

  13. 13. Toolboxes The Flexible Learning Toolboxes Business Activity aims to ensure that VET practitioners and learners continue to benefit from a national collection of learning and assessment resources (Toolboxes) that directly support the implementation of nationally endorsed training packages and meet state and territory e learning priorities. In 2008, production of new learning objects will be streamlined to provide a more rapid response as urgent new training and assessment needs are identified. The Toolbox focus on modelling educational quality will be retained while incorporating online assessment and RPL tools where appropriate. E-learning and assessment resources will be developed in dual form - Toolboxes and Toolbox learning objects - to align with nationally endorsed training packages and cover high-demand training areas and identified skills shortages.

  14. 14. Elearning for Industry In 2008 a total of $620,000 will be available for funding applications from industry in two groups. Approximately $300,000 will be available to fund three industries in the first year of the development of three-year strategic workforce development plans incorporating e-learning in those industries. This is a long-term strategy and depends on the Framework receiving funding to continue development beyond 2008.
