A transition to online learning for Launceston Christian College had one major aspiration in mind - teachers still wanted to teach.
The college, which caters for kindergarten to grade 10 students has been at Mowbray enacted a soft launch for its remote learning system the week before Easter.
"We wanted a key focus for it to be that kids could complete the modules or tasks relatively independently," principal Martin Howell said.

Mr Howell said the school had a strong bring your own device policy, which meant enrolled students were well equipped already to transition to remote learning.
Children participate in two virtual catch ups with their teachers a day, which made them accountable for their work and progress.
"We wanted parents to be supervisors but not stand in for teachers," Mr Howell said.
Launceston parent Heather Cooper said her three children, who are in Prep, Grade 2 and Grade 4, had adjusted well to remote learning.

"They can do most of the work independently, so it's been very successful," Mrs Cooper said.
Mrs Cooper is working from home so said making sure the program was easy as possible for her children to navigate was vital.
"Because I have three kids at school it's been good because they can all help each other to complete the tasks," she said.
One of the most popular parts of the remote learning program was how the school had built in "brain breaks" which consist of turning off the computer and completing an offline task.
"Sometimes that's Zumba or going outside in the fresh air - the kids enjoy that holistic approach and I have been joining them for the brain breaks," she said.
