All you need to know about accessing our online courses.
Which online course should I do?
We have created a flyer to help make it easy to choose which course is most appropriate for your needs and the flyer found HERE or see below. All of our courses can be found at https://courses.pld-literacy.org. **Please note that each of the main four age range courses allow the FREE viewing of the first section of the online course.

How do I access my online course certificate?
Once you have completed any of PLD’s online courses, you will be issued a certificate of completion which is accessible by going to https://pld-literacy-and-learning.thinkific.com/account/certificates. Even after your access to the course has expired, your certificate will still be accessible via the above link, however we recommend saving a copy for easy access.
Where can I find online course downloads?
All of our online courses include downloads relating to each of the video instalments which can be downloaded in PDF format - we suggest you download these as they can be useful while doing the course and a handy reminder long after you have completed the course. In addition to this, many of our courses have additional downloadable resources which relate to the course content &/or have been referred to during the course. To locate these resources and download them, refer to the left-side menu w
Why is it saying I haven't completed the course but I have? Also I have not received my certificate?
This is usually due to clicking between videos and downloads on the left-side section rather than clicking on 'Next'. If you go through each available element (videos and downloads) and then click 'Next' in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, that item should be treated as completed and you should then receive your certificate of completion.
Can we complete your online courses in a group environment?
Our online courses are created and licensed for use by an individual only, however if you would like to utilise our courses in a group environment so multiple staff have access to the content, we have recently added licensing options for multiple users. Discounts of up to 50% are available depending on the number of licenses required. Simply visit the links below, add the bundle to your cart and checkout. Once we have received your order, PLD w
I can't access my online course - how do I reset my password?
Go to https://courses.pld-literacy.org/users/password/new Enter your e-mail address. Check your e-mail to complete the process to reset your password.
I registered for an online course but meant to register for a colleague/staff member - how can I transfer it over?
Simply [contact us](mailto:email@example.com?subject=Online course transfer) with the details you used for your registration and the details of the person who will be undertaking the course and we’ll take care of transferring it over for you.
If we purchase the online course it can’t be accessed by different staff individually?
Technically yes, however accessing the course using the same login on multiple devices simultaneously will result in users having connection issues caused by the fact the 1 account is being used by multiple people, which is not how the system is designed to work. Furthermore, only 1 person can be awarded a certificate of completion once the course is completed. The courses are designed to have individual accounts setup for each user so they can progress through the content at their own pace, pi
If viewed as a group, do people need an individual log in and do we need to pay person?
Yes. The licenses for our online courses have been created to be used by individuals so they can progress through the content at their own pace, pick up where they left off previously and be awarded their own certificate of completion once they have completed all modules. Therefore, if you would like multiple staff to access online courses, we recommend purchasing 1 license per staff member. We have generous discounts available for multi-user licenses to help schools with budget constraints so
If a few people watch the online course together do we have to pay per person?
Yes you do. The licenses for our online courses have been created for use by individuals so they can progress through the content at their own pace, pick up where they left off previously and be awarded their own certificate of completion once they have completed all modules. Therefore, if you would like multiple staff to access online courses, we recommend purchasing 1 license per staff member. We have generous discounts available for multi-user licenses to help schools with budget constraint
Admin FAQ: How do I check if staff have completed their online courses?
Option 1 The most simplistic solution is to ask staff to submit their certificate to the school leader coordinating the online professional learning. This may be the literacy coordinator or the deputy principal. If teaching or support staff have not submitted their certificate it can be safely assumed that the course has either not been viewed or that the course has only been partially completed. Option 2 It is quite a time intensive process for the PLD reception staff to log in to eac
Does PLD offer discounts for a group on their online courses?

In the Early Years course the course was why you suggested teaching the letter names in semester one. Why is this so?
Most children come to school with a sense of the alphabet. So that by Term 3 (in the PLD sequence) when they are learning their alphabet sounds, it is ideal that they have a degree of familiarity with the alphabet, whether that is through TV, apps, parents or the environment. For children who come to school without ANY concept of the alphabet, singing the alpha
Why can't I/how do I login to my course?
