assess the applications. At this stage it was understood there was up to $750,000 available for application project funding. It was agreed to fund the following projects: E-portfolio Dental Hygiene TAFE TV, and Proof of Concept Network Project Final ReportJanuary 2010 Page 24 of 55

Large File Streaming. It was also agreed to provide each jurisdiction with support of $20,000 for the administrative load placed on them. In June 2009 VSC advised that this was no longer the case, and in fact the Project may be overspent. Consequently, the E-portfolio Project and TAFE TV were discontinued. Dental Hygiene Project This application project involved establishing a point to point high definition video conferencing link between Canberra Institute of Technology and Gilles Plains Campus, TAFE SA to deliver components of dental hygienist training across these campuses. The project will enable students to view high definition oral examinations using an intraoral camera, demonstrations of instrument use in real-time and to participate in class discussions via video conferencing. Students were to be able to observe real time examination and practices on a high definition viewing medium with supporting dialogue and conversation. As noted in 3.1.1, this Project encountered many difficulties in established the video connection and hence none of the planned teaching sessions Proof of Concept Network Project Final ReportJanuary 2010 Page 25 of 55

occurred. CIT and Gilles Plains will use the network and equipment for teaching in the first semester of 2010. The implementation of this project highlighted that most TAFE campuses do not have the network infrastructure to deliver the required connectivity to particular buildings or classroom. Both CIT and Gilles Plains had to lay fibre to connect the buildings that were to be used to their central network hub. 3.5 Governance and Project Management In mounting this project VET was at the vanguard of technology in education. The developmental and ground breaking nature of this Project, which involved multiple jurisdictions and fields of activity (practitioners, networks, policy), along with the heavy reliance on gratuitous contributions from the collaborative partners and the need for confidentiality, had a marked impact on both the governance and management of the Project. The complexity of this type of undertaking cannot be underestimated. The contributions made through goodwill to the Project by many people were much appreciated, however, because of the demands of their roles often the Project work rightly had to fall in line with other demands. TAFEs now are big businesses with big business models of management which made it difficult for even the most enthusiastic practitioners to devote the time required to the Project. This model is not a sustainable one.

    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.
