21 July 2021

A South African digital college has won the international 2021/22 Corporate LiveWire Prestige Award for the second year in a row (see our award certificate).

Think Digital Academy walked away with the honors for excelling in all fields of online schooling, making it South Africa’s virtual school of the year.

It is the first online school that provides the South African Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS), the United States General Education Development (GED) and the British International school curricula. It currently has approximately 7 500 enrolled learners.

According to Corporate LiveWire, Think Digital Academy has revolutionised online schooling in South Africa.

“Their world-class learner management system gives students access to interactive lessons which can be viewed at their own pace. This includes assessments, access to tutors and peers, study notes, weekly activity reports and quarterly progress reports.

“A new dimension in the way the curriculum is taught is at the heart of the academy’s work, enabling young people to gain the necessary understanding and skills they need for life work in today’s world. They have inspired innovation and linked students with contrasting academic abilities, bringing the classroom to the world and promoting understanding through a new way of teaching,” says the presenters.

Nominated online schools underwent an intensive review by judges. Aspects such as quality of content, technical merit and customer service provided to parents and students were taken into account. The finalists illustrated the companies’ commitment to providing innovative solutions that support personalised learning.

Vicky Moraitis, Operational Director of Think Digital Academy says school restructuring, enhanced online educational delivery technology and social distancing required during the COVID-19 pandemic have placed online school education in the spotlight.

“We anticipate that online schooling will continue to rise as families seek out greater flexibility, a change from a traditional school and a safer learning environment. Advancements in technology also allows distance education to be more personalised, interactive and automated.

“The future is certainly digital and we look forward to providing a safe, quality and affordable educational solution to all our students worldwide.”

The LiveWire awards represent the pinnacle of business achievement, championing the best in their respective fields. Each of the award winners has changed the world by creating new technologies, setting new trends and evolving industry standards over the past 12 months.

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 😁

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!!!!

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!

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

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!!!
