Abstract:As Australia's national ICT in education agency, Education.au faces the challenge of indexing web resources, learning objects and teacher-created resources for optimum discoverability by students and educators across all sectors of Australian education. This paper provides an overview of current thinking about learning architectures, and raises questions about how educational institutions are managing the cloud of learning resources currently available.

- The Indexer is published by the Society of Indexers on behalf of all the indexing societies, seeks to cover the full range of subjects, from articles at the cutting edge of new techniques to contributions discussing in a practical way the new tools available to indexers at all points in the technical spectrum or exploring the history of indexing. Its extensive reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while 'Indexes Reviewed' highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action. And, in 'Around the World', it keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community. First published in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.
