In September 2013 we changed our online learning platform – from Moodle to Haiku. This represented the biggest change in the life of NorthStarWorldwide since we adopted Moodle in 2006.
The change to Haiku has meant that we have rebuilt every single course that we offer, significantly improving virtually all of them by creating a simpler overall look and feel and by making much greater use of multimedia resources.
We have also re-developed the idea of our trial server. Now, families, teachers and students can access sample lessons directly from our web site, without the need to register or enrol with us first.
Our trial courses are now available – representing most of our Year 7 – 10 courses. Please note, however, that these courses reflect our curriculum as it was in June 2013. Improvements and changes hav ebeen made since then.
To access our trial courses, simply click on any of our courses below and you should have access to the first four or five weeks, just as if you were studying with us. Obviously you will not be able to submit any assignments but we hope that these samples will give you a good idea of what to expect if you study with us.
