ClassroomNZ2020 online learning platform

In light of the continuing global COVID-19 pandemic, we're ensuring New Zealand learners have access to quality online curriculum by extending access to the online learning platform ClassroomNZ2020 until 30 June 2021.

ClassroomNZ2020 has content to support ākonga-students from Years 1–13 and is free to state and state-integrated schools, kura and wharekura.

About ClassroomNZ2020

ClassroomNZ2020 helps you:

  • support learning progress after the disruption of Covid-19
  • provide personalised learning to students now – whether a group of students or an individual whether in class time or in students’ own time
  • extend or consolidate learning at the student’s level of progress
  • access a large range of ‘ready to go’ materials for blended learning during class time and learning from home
  • provide additional materials if you offer a further opportunity for assessment
  • transition seamlessly from the classroom to learning from home
  • provide quality distance learning in the event of a lockdown
  • complement your existing online tools (e.g. Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams).

ClassroomNZ2020 does not provide:

  • access to Te Kura’s teachers
  • assessment tasks for NCEA credit (NCEA assessment remains with your school)
  • automatic enrolment or usage of the courses – your school decides which teachers and students to register and for which courses, depending on your context.

Getting started

To get set up, you need to provide staff and student details to the Ministry from your SMS.

Course details for Years 7–13 will also need to be provided. We are providing support to schools and wharekura to do this, alongside support to students and teachers on how to use ClassroomNZ2020. We will work with you to help you get started.

Students can’t be set up without a request by their school. Once set up, access for teachers is via the Education Sector Login and access for students is through their regular school username and login.

Below are resources that show what ClassroomNZ2020 looks like and how it works. We hope these will help you plan for how you might use ClassroomNZ2020.
