    The area of technology-enhanced language learning (TELL) has traditionally focused on languages with many speakers and multiple resources available. However, there are numerous affordances of TELL which can support smaller language groups to prepare and deliver language learning programs. This paper discusses some of the issues relating to TELL in the context of Indigenous Australian languages, particularly how Indigenous communities can use TELL to support language work. It goes on to describe a project designed to create an online template using low-cost and low-tech tools. While developed for a specific context – creating online courses for teaching Indigenous languages at university – the Digital Language Shell has a range of possible applications to maintain Indigenous languages under Indigenous authority.
