Our learning platform is entirely web-based. This means you can use pretty much any computer and tablet to access our learning materials.

You can use any operating system, such as Linux, MacOS (10.x) or Windows to work with us. There is no need to install any special software in order to access the NSWLearning online learning environment.

PowerSchool, our partner in providing our learning platform, hve created apps for use on iPads and Windows 10 tablets. This means that our students can easily keep in touch with all that is going on within NSWLearning without the need to take a laptop on their travels!

To work with us, you will need –
A computer running Linux, Mac OSX, or Windows
A printer
A word processor capable of saving files in .doc or docx format, (eg MSWord, LibreOffice, Pages)
A modern web browser
Up-to-date security software;
Firewall software
An email address (Each student needs to have their own personal email address)

Access to the Internet (though this is not required 24/7)
A scanner may be useful but is not essential.

We find that parents really do need a reasonable working knowledge of their computer’s operating system. This does not mean that you need to be an IT expert, but in our experience it does help a great deal if at least one parent is familiar enough with computers to, for example, install software, keep an eye on anti-virus and other security software, and backup files to a separate location.
