Virtual Classrooms

Virtual classrooms allow students to learn with a teacher and each other via web conferencing technology.

There are several webconferencing technology platforms in use at TAFE NSW to connect students and teachers. Examples are Microsoft Teams or Adobe Connect. 

The guides below will assist you with connecting to your teacher and peers from home.

Moodle - Learning Management System (LMS)

Learning material and assessments for most courses are available via Moodle.
Access your Moodle through your Student Portal. Enter your campus in the TAFE Campus Locator to find the correct Moodle. Select your campus and then click the corresponding geographical area e.g. Sydney and Save. Your Learner Portal, Moodle and Library link are now saved for a quick access. TAFE Digital students select OTEN as their campus location.

Adobe Connect

This web conferencing software can be used for online meetings, eLearning and webinars. Teachers can interact and collaborate with their students in real time.

For the best experience, please use a browser other than Internet Explorer (IE).
