• Online education services that set us apart

Our key services

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.

  • Prerecorded lessons

    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.

  • Printable study notes

    All subjects across all grades have printable PDF summaries which can be used as study notes in preparation for your assessments.

  • Memos

    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 and feedback

    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.

  • Weekly e-mailed reports

    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.

  • Quarterly reports

    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.

  • Online tutors and student success coaches

    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.

  • Student Forum

    The Forum allows students to interact virtually with other students in their grade. Students are able to communicate in real-time, on their portals.

  • Live tutorials by industry experts and lecturers

    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.

Sarabibi Varachia

I love that there is an option of tutor support, and that it can be done at my own pace, the free 14 day trial gives a good idea of the course before signing up.

Janine Gouws

My daughter has gone from strength to strength since joining Think Digital Academy. She is now so used to taking notes after watching and reading through the material that she has taken comprehensive notes during her Zoom swimming sessions and is able to explain everything that she has learnt easily from her notes. This is a child who really battled in the conventional schooling system and has undergone a tremendous change since joining Think Digital Academy. Thank you to the Think Digital Team you truly are a spectacular team 😁

Neldie VdMerwe Viljoen

It was the best decision to enroll my grade 10 and 12 kids here. They can't get enough of the interesting lessons. The people are so pleasant and always help with kindness, no matter how many times you call to ask for help. You are the BEST!!!!

Judy-anne Naude

Love the platform, very user friendly.

Annie Andrews

My boys are very much enjoying this. And I love that you can do this anywhere. We take our ipads to the park, and we work from there. I love it!

Bob Howard

TDA is by far the best home schooling platform in South Africa. As a digital home school, I as a student can be anywhere, literally, and do my work. My marks have gone up, I no longer have to travel 2 hours a day and I am much more focused on school work.

Michelle Ferreira

The best. My kids love it!

Lorinda Everson

Love them!! They allow children to be children!!

Kharmen Wicks

Great home school option - we had a great experience last year during Covid lockdown. Our matric daughter passed with a university exemption - we were very happy with the support she received while she was doing her online studies with them - thank you Think Digital!!!
