The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2008), 26, (4), 163–169.

Abstract

As Australia’s national ICT in education agency, Education.au faces the challenge of indexing web resources, learning objects and teacher-created resources for optimum discoverability by students and educators across all sectors of Australian education. This paper provides an overview of current thinking about learning architectures, and raises questions about how educational institutions are managing the cloud of learning resources currently available.
