The CPC appliance provides two main types of services: (i) Digital Learning Objects DET has been involved in The Learning Federation's projects for development of "digital learning objects". Given the size of the repository (around 300 Gb), the most reliable method is to use a caching service available inside each school or college LAN to hold the content, and to ensure that cache contents are reliably maintained and updated as new content is released.

Sydney Region Sydney Region ICT news-10- CC primary school days 2007 From 2007 Sydney Region will conduct three Primary school CC days, North, Central and South and one High school CC day The decision was based on the increasing difficulty in attracting presenters able to attend four primary school days and two high school days and booking appropriate venues for six days. We believe that three days will still allow choice in terms of your attendance and will maximise attendance at all of the venues. Venues and dates for the 2007 K-6 days are: Sydney Girls’ High School-Tuesday of week 8 Oatley Senior High School- Wednesday of week 8 Miranda Regional Office- Thursday of Week 8
