Price & Delivery

Distance+ Class
Online, self-paced

Recorded lessons and self-paced learning:


This type of learning environment provides students with the opportunity to work through the course material at their own pace. Students gain access to a wealth of recorded resources including recorded lessons and recorded ‘how to’ information sessions.

Students also have access to fortnightly study support sessions and can attend as many as required. To get started on the right foot students will also have access to a live online orientation webinar.

The Distance+ course consists of a combination of:

  • Self-paced learning and assessment: Distance learning students access their learning materials electronically, interact with their instructors and assessors via telephone or email, and submit their completed assessments via the Learner Portal. Your Learner Guide and Assessment Workbook is included in the Learner Portal, and you will work through these at your own pace.
  • Independent learning and assessment activities: Wherever possible, it will be beneficial to consider and integrate your learning into your professional practice.
Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning Pathway:


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a suitable pathway if you can provide evidence that you have all of the skills, knowledge and experience in the units for this skill set. Our online TAESS00018 RPL Kit is the first step in assessing you against the requirements.

RPL is an assessment only process that is designed for those who possess substantial existing skills and knowledge in a specific industry. It allows people to obtain a qualification by demonstrating their competence in these skills without first having to be trained. Our RPL kits are based on a combination of evidence submission and a competency interview conducted via phone.

Discover the assessment requirements for each of the units included in the TAESS00018 Deliver E-Learning Skill Set. The resources provided to students will vary depending on their selected pathway. Find out how your selected pathway compares:

As part of this unit students will find someone to be a client and discuss at least two potential e-learning resources that could be developed (these can be colleagues or friends to simulate they if you do not have a real employer or client who currently requires the development of e-learning resources). Following that discussion students will conduct further research and document this in a brief along with the student’s recommendations. The student will then present their brief and recommendations back to their clients.

Once the student has their tacit approval they will develop project plans for both resources. Students will then complete the development of at least one of those e-learning resources.

Students will have the chance to reflect on their process and design beginning to end and consider what they would potentially do differently next time.

Please be aware of the below interaction requirements for all TAESS00018 Skill Set students:

  • Access to at least one person to act as a client
  • Access to at least two end-users to trial your resource and provide written feedback
  • Presentation of brief back to clients must be recorded and submitted for assessment

As part of this unit students get to deliver an e-learning program to at least two learners, utilising a range of e-learning tools and activities over time to monitor their progress, allowing them the opportunity to interact with the learners while they enhance their skills and knowledge.

Once the student has planned their program and appropriate e-learning tools, methods and requirements to meet the needs of their learners and the desired outcomes they are ready to implement their program.

Students will provide their learners with an induction/onboarding session to the technology and program. Students must also provide evidence of how they have monitored their learners progress and that they have completed the program.

Please be aware of the below interaction requirements for all TAESS00018 Skill Set students:

  • Access to two learners (these can be friends, family or colleagues)
  • Provide your two learners with the opportunity to interact with each other
  • Induction must be recorded and submitted for assessment
