Deloitte Consulting-THINQ team to do Australian defense e-learning project

The Australian Department of Defence has awarded a three-year, $3.31 million contract for an enterprisewide e-learning system to a consortium led by New York-based Deloitte Consulting and Baltimore-based THINQ Learning Solutions Inc.

The system, to be rolled out over four years, will provide e-learning access to 91,000 members of the Defence Department and their families. Users will include members of the navy, army and air force, as well as the 11 Defence Department civilian groups, making it one of the biggest e-learning system implementations in Australia, according to Danna Vale, assistant minister of defense.

The e-learning system will go live Nov. 3 for Army and the Defence Material Organisation. Access for other services and groups will follow.

The Deloitte Consulting-THINQ consortium will provide a learning management system and learning content management system for Defence's e-learning strategy, Vale said. Implementing the total e-learning strategy will cost approximately $5.27 million.

"The e-learning system will provide military and civilian staff, particularly those in regional and rural areas, with greater and more flexible access to training and development opportunities," Vale said.
