Welcome to SIDE and the 2020 school year!

New SIDE Students in 2020

SIDE primary students should be contacted by their class teachers with information related to getting started with the SIDE.

If you are a secondary student commencing at SIDE in 2020, you should have received an email with the subject line Getting Started at SIDE (sender: SIDE 360). This email was sent to the email address that was supplied by you or your school at enrolment. To access your DoE student email, use the Quick Links menu on the banner.

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 Quick Links menu on the banner or 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.

Continuing SIDE students from 2019

Continuing SIDE primary students should use their 2019 login details.

If you were a home-based secondary SIDE student in 2019 you will not receive a 'Getting Started at SIDE' email from SIDE 360. You should log in to Moodle using your 2019 username and password.


You can refer to the Troubleshoot page under the E-Learning tab on this website for support or secondary students can use the Fast Track to SIDE document.

Parents should read the K-6 Role of Parents or Home Tutor or the Year 7-12 Parent Supervisor FAQ.

If you have not received your 'Getting Started at SIDE' email or you have forgotten your login details for Moodle please call SIDE reception on 9311 1400.

If you have forgotten or don’t know your DoE login details:

  • Public school students: ask your SIDE supervisor or someone in Administration at your school for help.
  • Home-based or private school students: email your SIDE Student Coordinator or call 9311 1400.
