Tropical North Queensland TAFE (TNQT) offers a range of programs and courses online through its Online Learning Management System - my.TAFE. My.TAFE is used for delivery of learning materials, communication between members of the class via forums, live chat sessions and/or submission of assessment items.
Students will be automatically emailed their username and password on enrolment. For this reason, it is important that a current email address is provided on enrolment. The my.TAFE Get Connected sheet (PDF, 1.1MB) provides helpful my.TAFE information for students to assist in logging in.
Currently only nominated programs, or parts of programs, have an online presence. The Institute is currently expanding its online coverage to ensure that all programs have a dedicated my.TAFE space providing program information, notices, links, documents and communication tools. Due to the nature of competency based training, online delivery is most commonly part of a blended delivery strategy incorporating online, web or video conferencing, and other methods in class or in the field. Some TNQT programs are offered fully online and this is indicated in the program guides available on this site.
The main benefit of online learning is that it does not require physical attendance at TAFE. Students can study online from home, work, or our Learning Centres. All online programs and courses can be accessed at any time, day or night allowing students to study at their own pace and intensity without the uniform pace of a classroom.
Online learning optimises abilities and skills. Students can choose to skim over familiar materials and concentrate on areas containing new information.
The informative style of training encourages learning through text, pictures, interactive diagrams, links to online resources and web forums.
Online learning allows students to upgrade IT skills, even if the program is not directly related to an IT area.
Companies and individuals can save a substantial amount of time and travel costs by transferring to an online mode of training.
