 Issue 22: November 2016, out now!

In this issue:

We've got a profile on facilitators Ana Terry and Don Hunter. The couple currently live in Vanuatu on a Volunteer Service Abroad scheme but are continuing to facilitate their respective courses. 

Also on a Pacific island, students Sarah Tonorio and Ina-Arii George are working hard on their National Certificate in Adult Education and Training. They want to help the next generation of Cook Islanders achieve high levels of education so they're learning the best way to go about that.

When Tim Garman isn't helping students master photograph editing software Photoshop, he can be found restoring his beloved 50-year-old Fiat 500 (Bambina) car.

Former police officer Trinity Milham is one of those taking advantage of the SIT2LRN courses and sees a great future for herself in the health and safety sector - as well as creating more flexible time to spend with her family.

SIT2LRN History

SIT2LRN is a distance learning programme run by the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) from our Downtown campus in Invercargill, New Zealand. Courses are delivered using an online Blackboard system and students are guided and supported by highly qualified facilitators from throughout the country and have access to numerous resources and support services, offered by SIT.

From a humble beginning in 2003, SIT2LRN Distance Learning has grown into a leader of innovative, quality education. We offer 43 qualifications - up to postgraduate diploma level - across a variety of sectors including education, business, computing, health sciences, horticulture and sports. There are several intakes for each course throughout the year.

SIT2LRN evolved from the SIT Zero Fee Scheme which was launched in 2001, with the support of community funders, to New Zealand students studying on campus. So popular was the take-up of the Zero Fees offer, SIT immediately began planning to roll out the initiative to students throughout New Zealand via a novel delivery method – multi-media. In partnership with Southland TV (now Cue TV) SIT used television and internet technology to provide its distance learning.

In 2008, SIT became the second tertiary institute in New Zealand, the eighth in Australasia and the southernmost in the world to join the iTunes U project. Within a year SIT had surpassed world-renowned universities Cambridge, Oxford and Stanford to top the worldwide list of most popular education downloads on iTunes U, with its “Intensive English” series being number one for six months. It recorded its two millionth download in November 2010 and Apple, the owner of iTunes U, was using SIT as an example of how a small institute could achieve so much on the educational world stage.

In 2013, over 3000 students took the opportunity to study through SIT2LRN and it’s anticipated a similar number will enrol during 2014.  And while the Zero Fee Scheme is only available to New Zealand citizens, SIT2LRN’s reach continues to increase around the globe.

"The best aspects were I was able to learn at my own pace, and from home, the support was good, and the library loan system excellent"
