Getting started in 2017

Welcome to SIDE and the 2017 school year!
New SIDE students

If you are a student commencing at SIDE in 2017, you should receive an email with the subject line Getting Started at SIDE (sender: SIDE 360). This email is sent to the email address that was supplied by you or your school at enrolment.

To access your DoE email, you will need to log into the DoE portal. To do this, use the Quicklinks menu on the banner or the E-Learning tab.

The Getting Started at SIDE email includes your login details for Moodle. It is vital that you login to Moodle as soon as possible and update your profile. To get to Moodle, use the Quicklinks menu on the banner or Logins under the E-Learning tab and select Moodle.

You will then have access to either SIDE Launchpad or SIDE Essentials to get started. Your teachers will add you to your subject courses as soon as possible.
