Abstract

An historical and technical account of the development of EdNA Online, a website which serves the education and training community within Australia and focused on maximising the benefits of the Internet for education. The collaborative framework that is EdNA (Education Network Australia) is outlined with an emphasis upon the aggregation of value achieved through collaboration. Shortlisted for the 1998 Carl Bertelsmann prize, EdNA Online provides a range of services and functions - from a directory of information about all aspects of education and training in Australia, to quality content supporting resource discovery, to a facilitator of networking opportunities among its constituencies. A 'data model' is presented as an abstraction which attempts to synthesise the current foundations of the website while providing a tool for considering its ongoing development. Matching the pursuit of mutual benefit through collaboration with the data model reveals the commonality of 'value-adding'.
