Greetings from Canberra, where the National Archives of Australia (NAA) 
are explaining the new "Australian Government Digital Transition 
Policy". This requires records to be archived electronically from 2016: 

NAA are running "Digital Edge workshops" to help agencies implement the 
new policy: http://www.naa.gov.au/records-management/training-events/

The NAA presenter mentioned there is a gap between short in-service 
training courses and the formal studies offered by universities. In 
response I am looking at revamping my online course "Electronic Document 
and Records Management" (COMP7420) at the Australian National 
University. This will be available to students doing traditional degrees 
in business and computing: 

Also ANU students can make up their own program using ANU Graduate 
Studies Select. As part of this I am looking at how to satisfy the 
formal requirements of professional bodies such as Records and 
Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIMPA), while 
remaining flexible:
