Learning Lab Contextualised Content (LLCC) is a multidisciplinary suite of digital open educational resources.  It supports learners and educators by providing foundation resources in an interactive, flexible, and shareable format.

Developed by educators and digital learning designers, the aim of this content is to provide realistic examples of the implementation of skills and knowledge required by students at a tertiary level. Included in the LLCC are materials on a range of subjects from maths, physics, and writing, to critical thinking, collaboration, and time management. The resources encourage learners to think about how they will apply these skills in their future careers and focus on four industry areas: engineering, economics and marketing, healthcare, and social services.  

All objects sit within a larger story, that of the Salty Creek Community Festival, and can be explored holistically by the learner. However, each learning object is also modular, meaning it can be used as an independent lesson or activity.

This book is a testament to the strength of these relationships demonstrated in the trust, respect, shared vision, flexibility, and reciprocity exhibited during this period.
