Online tools and resources

Ngā utauta me ngā rauemi ā-ipurangi

When you study with us, as well as accessing your course content we’ll provide a range of other online tools, resources and services to use during your studies. 

Online courses

You will access your online courses in iQualify, our learning management system. They will include a mix of readings, video, interactive activities and quizzes, and assessments that you need to complete. 

In each course you will also be able to see updates from your Course Facilitator, ask them questions and create notes.

I love the online format, it's fantastic. Even if you just have half an hour, you can go and do some reading. You don’t even need internet connection as I have browsed through pages while on a flight. It just makes things so much easier.

MyOP learner portal

All learners get a personal MyOP learner portal account. This is where you will be able to see information about your courses such as start and end dates, assessment dates and results. 

From MyOP you can go to your courses in iQualify. It also includes links to our support teams, study resources, and other online tools such as the library and your Microsoft 365 account. And you can download MyOP to your phone as an app.
