The per-person cost of the Teaching the New NSW K-6 Technologies curriculum online learning modules is between $6 and $9 per module, depending on the length and complexity of the module.  Access to the full set of modules can be pre-purchased for $69.  Modules remain available for ongoing and repeat access for 24 months after commencement.

Schools can pre-pay a block of modules or a block of unlimited accesses for teachers.  Teachers from that school can then simply enrol themselves with payment automatically debited against the school's credit.
Enrolment to complete the online modules is on Pedacomp's Moodle learning management system at http://www.pedacomp-moodle.com.  Our Moodle system also delivers the modules and tracks teacher participation for NESA professional development credit purposes.
