The Eduroam Trial in the School Sector Project was initiated as QUDIT directors recognized a need to provide eduroam access for schools nationally. The primary objective of the project is to trial Australian schools becoming Eduroam identity and service providers in order to determine if, and how best to, expand Eduroam into this branch of the education sector.
The trail will be conducted across at least two Australian states and have no more than 15 schools in total. Opportunities will be explored in at least the states of Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria.
QUDIT, DETE and AARNet with support from the Australian Catholic University, Queensland University of Technology, University of Southern Queensland and The University of Queensland will be working on the Queensland aspect of the Australia wide initiative.
The outcome of the trial will provide a recommendation on if and how to progress to ongoing participation by schools as EDUROAM identity and service providers.
