SABRENet Limited, DFEEST and AARNet Pty Ltd are responsible for developing an effective and efficient method of connecting the SABRENet TAFEs to the AARNet backbone. AARNet is responsible for establishing, managing and operating the infrastructure that will support the network. All parties are responsible for ensuring effective working relationships that provide the best environment in which to test the concept of a fibre-optic TAFE network. c. Funding and contractual arrangements DEEWR has provided funding of $2,534,000 (including GST) to VSC to manage the financial arrangements of this project. This funding must cover all expenditure on the project. On behalf of the collaborative partners, VSC will contract with AARNet to establish, manage, build and operate the network. Most of the $2,534,000 (including GST) funding will be used for the establishment and operation of the physical network and the building of fibre-optic tail circuits from the AARNet backbone to selected TAFE sites. This funding has been notionally allocated as follows: o Set up network (Stage 1) and operate for 1 year $ 975,920 o Build tail circuits $ 786,777 Proof of Concept Network Project Final ReportJanuary 2010 Page 44 of 55

Attachment 7.1 Project Workplan Within the total funding amount of $2,534,400 (including GST), $250,000 is to be quarantined for the trialling of applications/activities/content on the network. This will include the cost of purchase, development and maintenance of those applications. AARNet will negotiate with DFEEST and VSC in relation to an access agreement for access to the AARNet network. The distribution of funding within this project may be varied at DEEWR’s absolute discretion. d. Infrastructure created as part of the project The construction of fibre-optic tail circuits for this project will leverage existing AARNet infrastructure constructed for other education and training purposes. It is the intention of all collaborative partners that infrastructure created by this project will extend the existing infrastructure and in turn be available for other education and training entities to leverage for future purposes. All collaborative partners have agreed that access to fibre-optic tail circuits created through the $2.534 million funding provided by DEEWR for this project will be readily available to all sectors of education and training. 3. Phases of project: a. Stage 1.1 - set up network (November to December 2008) i. Establish network ii. Connect to the network the Victorian TAFEs that are already connected to AARNet and to CIT iii. Set up a link/protocol between the proof of concept TAFE network and AARNet and the universities connected through AARNet. b. Stage 1.2 - connect SABRENet sites to the network (November to December 2008) i. Connect SABRENet sites to the network c. Stage 2 - test hypotheses, evaluate and adjust (December 2008 to November 2009) i. Trial applications/activities/content on the network that test the hypotheses in 1.d.i.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
