Working with the Inner West Cluster of ACE partners Central West Community College, Riverina Community College, Western College, South East Community College, Albury Wodonga Continuing Education Centre, the project - Engaging Rural Communities in E-Learning - focused on the target groups of business, general community and disadvantaged learners to build community participation in e-learning.

Across the region Central West Community College held promotional events and provided e-learning gift vouchers to the target groups to engage clients. The business community e-learning offers focused on their legislative needs such as OH&S and privacy to show them how their training needs can be met effectively and efficiently through e- learning. The e-learning opportunities for the general community and disadvantaged learners were through a selection of courses from IT through to writing skills. Testing of the marketing and e-learning models were documented throughout the year.
