The Learning in Networks of Knowledge (LINK) Project explored and identified Web 2.0 applications and tools that can contributed to innovative and agile teaching and learning approaches centred on knowledge production in a networked environment. These approaches and a wide range of Web 2.0 applications were tested within an applied research setting in the Department of Internet Studies at Curtin University. Pedagogical challenges involved the development of authentic learning experiences and assessment tasks, while providing effective cognitive scaffolding within which learning could occur. The project website provides examples, guidance material, publications, tools and resources and should be read with the report.

Learning in Networks of Knowledge: improving student outcomes using Web 2.0 concepts and a knowledge-networking approach
Tribes and cultures: frameworks for shared language and intent to cost-effectively improve learning outcomes
This project aims to facilitate the construction of effective electronic learning systems by investigating the domain-specific language used in their development by university lecturers, instructional designers, educationalists and IT specialists. Project outcomes include: an interactive glossary outlining the shared language and the language conflicts of the stakeholder groups; a pedagogical design framework, which specifies the communication processes between the design, implementation and user partners; an annotated bibliography; and a project website.
Curriculum renewal in postgraduate information technology education: a response to growing service sector dominance
Themes central to the study of services were identified as: service system fundamentals, service systems management, service systems engineering, service technologies, business process modelling, knowledge management systems, customer relationship management, and modern organisations. Detailed course descriptions and some teaching materials for each of these themes were developed.
Also implemented was a Service Learning and Teaching Foundry, which provides a virtual space for students to learn important service-oriented approach/business process modelling (SOA/BPM) concepts, gain hands-on experience with service-oriented software engineering, and practise their skills using real world examples.
