Using the Internet to improve government service delivery
Keith Besgrove from DBCDE talked at "Converging on an NBN Future" on use of the NBN for government services. He pointed to health and education trails now taking place. Some of this is covered in an NBN Co publication: Using the NBN to improve government service delivery".
One point Keith made was that some of the barriers to on-line services are administrative, not technical. As an example, TAFE courses are largely state funded and so of a student attends a course provided by another state, so way to cover the cost needs to be found.
