Project team: BRACE, Education Training & Employment Ltd, Victoria

This project focussed on adults who remain isolated from learning opportunities.

BRACE trialled the use of e-learning - computer and internet based - in order to overcome geographic, economic, social and community isolation . The project operated in Ararat, Ballarat and surrounding smaller communities; and Maryborough. Existing technology and products, such as Toolboxes, were part of the trial and delivery was to small groups and individuals. The project built upon the existing regional focus of BRACE, the well developed partnership with Ballarat City Council and 'Ballarat a Learning City' as well as built on links with local government in Ararat and Maryborough.

Ben and Lyn presented at Converge, the Victorian e-learning showcase, October '06. The BRACE project used Elluminate and Microsoft Sharepoint to create engaging online spaces for their learners in the community. Here you can view their presentation.
