In addition to Learn, students and staff have one account to access a range of TAFE SA tools:
Your TAFE SA email address is in your own name format, ie firstname.lastname@example.org. Use your TAFE SA email address to sign in to TAFE SA computers and various tools.
Open an internet browser to access any of these resources and you will be asked to enter your email and password in a ‘single sign-on’ screen. If you keep your browser window open, you won’t need to re-enter your password to access other resources.
You may also opt to forward your TAFE SA email to your personal email account.
