A news release reports that Australia's "DERN (Digital Education Research Network), established in 2010 and managed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), has now matured into a new and exciting service with an attractive and easy to navigate new website." The site looks quite nice and does appear to have good weekly content, such as this newsletter on internet access, which links to good external resources like Scott Ewing and Julian Thomas's report on The Internet in Australia, but it requires a $25 annual subscription to access (or a 'pay as you go' fee in a similar range) to access research reports, a sum that can't be paying for the cost of the service but as a barrier decreases its utility substantially.
