Hi Tom,

I was hoping I could find something useful on the helpisathand site, but after looking for several minutes I could not find anything that seemed to fit this.

Any thing in particular you were trying to find ?

Yes. What help are you providing now ...

The content of this site is determined in main by the UK Online centres themselves. The Community Programmes team of Becta [1] run this job; as I understand things, what ever information the centres require goes on the site. (This site does not provide learning materials though. The C-M team have recently launched http://www.aclearn.net/ which is hoped to remedy this in part).

"As a team the Community Programmes, thinks that the web is a publishing medium and that it enables the development of 'androgogy', that is self-directed learning. We feel that we should be involved in the development of tools that people can deploy for their own purposes." [2]

The team encourage centres to publish web content, and offers pragmatic help and support.

The team support the [centres] email list and may be able to construct something useful out of our discussions.

...and what could you provide
community ICT projects in future?

I am unsure how long this infrastructure will last in its present form. I trust that the lessons learnt by the ICT sector in these centres will be refined in future community activity.
