About US

We want every student to have a great learning experience, and for teachers to have more time to focus on what’s important – student success.

With iQualify for Schools you can use technology to make this happen. Our easy to use learning management system (LMS) makes teaching and learning easier, more personalised and social, while our online resources will take the hard work out of planning.

Who are we?

iQualify for Schools is part of the Open Polytechnic, New Zealand’s specialist distance learning provider. With around 30,000 students each year, Open Polytechnic is a leader in online learning and design.

In 2015, Open Polytechnic launched the iQualify LMS, which iQualify for Schools combines with New Zealand content from ESA Publications.

Our goal is to empower teachers to use technology effectively in their classrooms.
