Had a visit recently from a company which created interactive multimedia for education. They showed me a demonstration of a vocational course and one for schools. They said they had done numerous school modules for the "Le@rning Federation". This is a non-profit consortium of state and federal Australian and New Zeeland governments. So I went to look for content suitable for university ICT courses. There were 47 items under the "Information technology" category, but these seemed to mostly consist of how to set the ring tone on your mobile phone and old black and white photos. There seemed to be very little educational content. Perhaps the Learning Federation has good content at other educational levels or for other disciplines but there seems to be little of value for unviersity ICT edcuation.
