IP and copyright are vested in Edith Cowan University and the four authors (by agreement with ECU).

No other parties hold any interest in the IP of the program.

The program has been marketed in Book and CD-ROM form by MASTEC, a commercial arm at ECU. It has been sold in this form, and in a few instances as site licenses, to over 36 Australian universities and schools. Copies have also been sold to educational institutions in Austria, Bhutan, Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore, the UK and USA.

The learning design has been replicated in another CD-ROM/Book package entitled Investigating Teaching Strategies in Mathematics Classrooms by the same authors and publisher. It focuses on allowing students to explore a range of teaching and classroom management strategies appropriate to mathematics teaching.

The resources elements of the program have also been used in a website entitled MEOW (Mathematics Education on the Web) at www.scam.edu.au/meow. This site was designed to support preservice teachers on professional practice in schools. It will soon be superseded buy a more extensive site incorporating support for beginning teachers.
