How long does a course (MOOC) take to complete?
Course length completion times vary and details are provided in the introductory information for each course. Visit the course you are interested in on our Available MOOCs page to find out more.
Will I receive a certificate?
Yes. At the end of the course, and upon completion of the task associated with each unit, you will be able to download and print a Certificate of Completion, which will explain the course content and expected professional learning hours.
Our certificates are linked to the AITSL professional standards for Australian teachers.
Can I view my progress?
You can view your progress by logging into the MOOC and clicking on the Module tab to see your progress.
Can I run the MOOC in my school?
We highly recommend taking our course materials and using them to support your school and community professional learning sessions.
We have heard positive feedback from leaders who take bits and pieces and run workshop sessions or from school groups who work through the course together.

Not at all! Our lending library is free for teachers and schools.
Professional learning events

You can find out more about our professional learning events, and how to arrange one for your school.
