Papers from the 1991, 2000 and 2005 ascilite conferences were analysed to identify key themes and concepts that have emerged from the thinking and research of Australian academics working with learning technologies. In 1995, themes were related to student learning and software / multimedia development. In 2000 there was a focus on student learning and specific products. In 2005, the online learning environment, learning activities and outcomes were key themes. Key themes in the whole collection of papers were the examination of most facets of “going online” and learning activities/assessment.

Keywords: lexical analysis, students, learning, learning technology, research themes
