The Teaching from Country program, originally funded by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council, enables university students around the world to learn directly from traditional knowledge authorities on their traditional land in remote places. In this chapter we report on our Information Technologies and lndigenous Communities (!TIC) Symposium presentation in Canberra, and tell the story of how we planned, configured and implemented socio-technical arrangements for the Yolngu Studies teaching program, and then brought people together from Arnhem Land and around the world to a seminar in Darwin, where we worked together to discuss and document what we had learned about place, technology, and Yolngu and academic knowledge practices.
