The goal of The Le@rning Federation Schools Online Curriculum Content Initiative is to ensure students from Australia and New Zealand maximise the educational opportunities made possible by online technology. The Le@rning Federation has adopted a ‘learning objects model’ approach to the development of interactive multimedia computer-based resources. The potential economic advantage of learning objects is that they can be disaggregated and resequenced for different educational purposes.

The Le@rning Federation was initially commissioned to develop, over five years, learning objects in the following priority curriculum areas:

• Science from K–P to year 6 and for years 9–10
• Mathematics and numeracy from K–P to year 9
• Literacy for students at risk in years 5–8
• Studies of Australia from K–P to year 10
• Innovation, enterprise and creativity from K–P to year 10
• Languages other than English (Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian) from K–P to year 10.
