Online learning

Most Te Kura courses are delivered online through our online learning environment (My Te Kura). Visit our Using My Te Kura section to find out how My Te Kura works.

Personalised approach

My Te Kura is designed to provide a learning experience that is personalised and responsive to each individual student. At the start of many courses students complete a diagnostic that enables their Te Kura teacher to determine the level the student is working at and choose the most appropriate modules for them to focus on.

Required equipment

Students need access to a computer and the internet in order to study with us. Find out what equipment we recommend.

Releasing modules

In some of our courses, teachers release modules to the students as they go. Typically, once a student has submitted an item for assessment through the My Te Kura dropbox, their teacher releases the next module for the student to work through.

Submitting work to My Te Kura dropboxes

Wherever possible, we encourage schools to ensure students submit their work online through each course’s My Te Kura dropbox. This means feedback can be given quickly while the learning is still fresh in the student’s mind and it minimises any delays caused by posting the work.

Students are required to submit one piece of assessable work to Te Kura every month to avoid non-returner status. 

Sending work by post

There will be some occasions when sending work back through the post will be the preferred method. This will be indicated as part of the course information in My Te Kura.

Learning support subject resources are delivered in print by post. Completed work may be scanned and emailed direct to the learner support subject teacher or returned by post.

Please note that Te Kura no longer pays postage costs for work returned by dual-enrolled students.
