It’s time we address the elephant in the room; why is the cost of implementing Intuto so low? From the outset, affordability was our overriding goal and we've worked hard to achieve this. We believe that e-learning should be attainable, pricing should be easy to understand and you shouldn't be caught out by unexpected fees. In this article, we explore our philosophy around democratising e-learning.
So you’re ready to jump into teaching online? Whether it’s for the first time or you’re looking to shake up your system, the first, and probably the most important decision you need to make is which e-learning platform you’re going to use.
The current situation has hastened the uptake of online learning (and everything else!), so ready or not, educators have been thrown into teaching online. Here’s what you need to know to do it right.

We all saw Covid-19 affecting countries overseas and we all knew that it would eventually reach New Zealand’s shores, but not many believed it would impact New Zealand’s teaching curriculum as quickly and dramatically as it did on March 23rd, when it was announced all schools were closed as at 3pm that day.
When the lockdown happened, I don’t think anybody really knew what to do. Certainly getting close to your loved ones and staying safe was step one, but after that, how could educators help the community and parents get through the four week (at least) lock down?
Great, you've got people signed up to your Intuto online training course. Now you need to help them complete it – and hopefully enjoy it too.
