All our lessons have been recorded and taught by subject matter experts and masters in their fields. These lessons can be accessed from anywhere at any time, provided you have a stable internet connection. Lessons can also be viewed “offline” on our Think Digital Academy App which is available on the Google Play App Store.
Think Digital Academy has a number of key services which makes our online school very special and us incredibly proud. We truly go the extra mile to ensure that both you and your child receive the best support during your online learning journey with us.
All subjects across all grades have printable PDF summaries which can be used as study notes in preparation for your assessments.
Each lesson contains one or more activities which have to be completed either online or in your workbooks. Memos have been provided for all the lesson activities which enables you to check and mark your own work.
Assessments are completed once all the content for the term has been successfully completed and covered. Students in Grades/Stages R-9 will receive instant feedback on their assessment once it has been completed and a copy of the assessment is emailed directly to the parent or tutor. This is a useful tool which enables parents/tutors to easily identify and remedy any areas of concern.
A weekly report is mailed to the parent or the tutor of the student every Monday morning.
This report details all of the student’s activity on the system during the preceding week. The report includes useful information such as which lessons the student has viewed, which have been completed, what scores were achieved in the lesson quizzes, how long the student spent on each lesson, etc.
Students are able to download and print their final reports at the end of each term. Once all four terms have successfully been completed, a final report displaying results for each term can be printed.
Our reports are recognised and accepted by all government and private schools, globally.
Students who receive the National Senior Certificate (NSC) certificate, can apply at their prospective universities, provided they meet the minimum entry requirements. Similarly, students who receive the British International certificates for GCSE and AS levels, can also apply at their perspective universities locally and abroad, provided they meet the minimum entry requirements.
We encourage all parents and students to do their homework as to what the entry requirements are for the various university facilities, in order to select the correct combination of subjects when making their final subject choices in Grade 10 or GCSE level.
Students who opt for the “With Tutor Support” option upon registration, will have access to a panel of online tutors on their dashboards.
These tutors can be contacted from Mondays to Fridays between 08:00 and 16:30, and will respond within 15 minutes. Tutors can be consulted for any related content or general questions. This does not include one on one virtual tutoring, but does include assistance via images, videos, additional resources or text explanations.
All students can contact a panel of success coaches for any kind of assistance relating to their content or portal.
The Forum allows students to interact virtually with other students in their grade. Students are able to communicate in real-time, on their portals.
We’re very excited to launch our new live tutorials in September 2021. Further Education and Training (FET) students will have the opportunity to join a live tutorial for various subjects. A schedule outlining what subject and which lesson will be covered can be viewed on their online calendars.
