The SLENZ project officially finished in December 2009, although a number of activities have continued into 2010. The final evaluation report on the project was published in early March and work continues on providing free copies of the builds to those who are interested. It is intended that this site will provide an archive of the SLENZ project as well as the latest information on the work of the SLENZ team members particularly as they relate to the development and use of the SLENZ builds.
The SLENZ project was made possible by an 18 month grant from the NZ Government”’’s Tertiary Education Commission who run an Encouraging and Supporting Innovation Fund. Led by Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT), the project involved a number of other New Zealand tertiary institutes including Otago Polytechnic (OP), Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec), The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand (TOPNZ) and Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT). The project was supported by IBM NZ and Telecom NZ and also received support and assistance from a number of individuals, informally called the SLENZ friends. The project team would like to acknowledge the contribution made by all their friends in particular “Prof” Scott Diener of Auckland University.
