Scootle provides Australian teachers and students with access to online digital curriculum resources sourced from the National Digital Learning Resources Network (NDLRN). These resources can be used in a range of flexible ways to suit their own curriculum needs.
Scootle resources include learning objects, museum artefacts, artworks, archival documents, photographs, archival and contemporary moving images, maps, posters, songs and speeches.
Queensland state school teachers access Scootle resources, along with other Education Queensland resources (such as C2C), through the Learning Place. The Learning Place also provides a range of safe and secure spaces for curriculum delivery, collaboration and communication. Access to the Learning Place is available through your departmental network login ID.
Following an agreement between the Department and Education Services Australia (ESA), you can access Scootle resources directly, as well as other national services such as Australia's national social network for teachers, Scootle Community and the national online formative assessment environment, Improve.
When using improve, staff must not use identifiable student data when registering students. An email address is not a mandatory requirement as there is an option to print student login details. Alias names can be used for the student names, e.g. DJ, however if you intend to use the reporting function you may want to cross-match student names with the alias names.
All Department of Education and Training staff can gain instant access by clicking on the Queensland Government crest featured on the Scootle Login Options page.
When not logged into the department's IT network (e.g. when working at home) staff will need to enter the username and password used to log into the department's network.
All contractors will need to request federated access to Scootle using iRegister, seeking approval from their direct-line supervisor. Please contact the departmental ICT Support Service Centre for more information.
Staff can continue to access Scootle’s education resources through The Learning Place.
More information can be found on the Staff Learning Place (DET staff only).
