E-learning is a form of guided learning which takes place through electronic technologies and media. E-learning days are planned in the school’s academic calendar. The school may be transferred to e-learning mode for a longer period in special situations by the decision of the school’s management team or the Estonian government (e.g. school closures due to the pandemic).

Our teachers are digitally competent and skilled using a variety of e-learning tools and platforms.

Tartu International School offers a form of e-learning – the Distance Learning Programme – to its students during the physical closure of the schoolhouse due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Distance Learning Programme, the majority of learning and teaching for grades 4 to 9 takes place in real-time according to a specially designed timetable using digital communication (e.g. Zoom, Google Meet). Grades 1 to 3 follow a daily schedule which is a combination of individual tasks and weekly online meetings with their teacher. The principles of the programme can be found here.
