Each of the individual courses may have additional details they require for access.  Here are the steps to create an account:

  • Fill out the New Account form
  • An email will be immediately sent to confirm registration. Click on the web link it contains and the account will be confirmed (please check your spam/junk email box and if an email does not appear please email for support)
  • Select a course to participate in and if prompted for an 'enrolment key' use the one that the course coordinator has provided. This will enrol you in the course
  • Once enrolled in a course staff need only to enter their username and password to log in to the site and courses they have enrolled in will be visible in the “My courses” section.

The following courses may be of particular interest:
