NZIE LOCKDOWN: Coronavirus Pandemic 2020 🦠
With the COVID-19 Lockdown, many challenges were faced 😓. Two of them being – learning and teaching from home 🏡 We all had to quickly adapt to our “new normal” and help make the change to digital classrooms a seamless transition for our students.
Thankfully, to our amazing tutors and guest speakers 🙌 (as well as our stable internet connection and technological devices), we were able to continue teaching our courses successfully online 💻 Are you interested in securing a COVID-RESISTANT job? Check out this blog here for more info.

NZIE’s FIRST ONLINE INDUCTION: Virtual Learning 🖥
Due to our “new normal,” we here at NZIE decided to make some exciting new shifts and changes to our Digital Marketing Diploma Level 7. We thought with the world 🌏 becoming more digitally and technologically advanced, that it would be a great idea to roll out our Digital Marketing Diploma COMPLETELY online 💻
As well as open-up our Diploma NOT ONLY to Domestic students in Auckland but the rest of New Zealand! 🤩
Therefore, in October this year, we kicked off our 2-day Induction for our newest Online Digital Marketing Diploma intake! Pictured is our lovely student services co-ordinator Jana who pulled together an epic *fully online* induction The Induction started with a beautiful Powhiri welcoming (online via zoom); it was a truly magical experience directed from a Marae
Additionally, we invited back a few graduates to speak on a panel and share their student journey We also had some fantastic industry guest speakers pop-in to share their insights about Digital Marketing as well!
