e-mat: a place to find resources and ideas about Pacific e-learning
E-mat is for staff in tertiary organisations who want to improve the outcomes of their Pacific learners. These people might be educators, managers, support staff and IT staff. E-mat has particular value for staff in organisations that have significant numbers of Pacific students or are committed to meeting the needs of Pacific learners.

In Pacific cultures the mat represents collectivity. It is a place to welcome, talk, debate, and share knowledge and hospitality. It is also a gift, an asset to exchange or treasure.
E-mat brings together past, present, and future knowledge, and creates a space where this knowledge can be shared and woven together
