This paper presents the work done in a project to support the teaching of New South Wales (NSW) Indigenous languages through online and mobile systems. The process has incorporated languages with a variety of resources available and involved community workshops to engage speakers and linguists in developing and sharing these resources with learners. This research looks at Human Computer Interaction (HCI) for developing interfaces for Indigenous language learning, by considering the knowledge sharing practises used in the communities, and we compare this work in Australia with similar findings on language reclamation with the Penan indigenous people Malaysia. The HCI studies have been conducted in workshops with linguists and community members interested in studying and teaching their language. The web services developed and used for various languages uses processes of tacit knowledge sharing in an online environment.
