It wasn't exactly plain sailing when the IT department at the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) set out to develop the world's largest e-learning system.

The NETC system is very sophisticated: it includes virtual classrooms, customised simulations and a backend content management system. This investment was necessary to ensure that the content meets its aims.
