All information provided on the SACE website is generic to all subjects – the information in regard to online submissions as said can be accessed through the subject stage 2 operational website or on the SACE Board home page under the Google search space type in: online submissions.


Efficient use of the keyboard is an important skill for all IPP students – this will reduce the amount of time taken by students if they need to key in text for their tasks. This website is excellent for helping students to improve their touch-typing skills. The site has the advantage that teachers can create an online class so that student progress can be monitored. It also has the advantage that students love it!

Important information for all teachers of IPP:

Subject information

Students apply practical skills and design principles to provide creative solutions to text-based communication tasks. They create both hard-copy and electronic text-based publications, and evaluate the development process.

Students use technology to design and implement information processing solutions, and identify, choose, and use the appropriate computer hardware and software to process, manage and communicate information in a range of contexts.

Since the SACE website has the most up-to-date information for the teaching of both Stage 1 and 2 Information Processing and Publishing, it is recommended that teachers refer there for current LAP and task exemplars.
