After you have logged in and accessed eWānanga LMS successfully, we highly recommend that you change your password to something only you can remember. This ensures that access to your personal files and sensitive information cannot be accessed by others.

There are two steps that need to be taken in order to change your password. * If you have already registered yourself with the Password Reset Portal, you only need to follow step 2.

  1. Register yourself with the Password Reset Portal
  2. Change your password

Registering yourself with the Password Reset Portal

All students need to register themselves with the Password Reset Portal. This must be done at least once before you can change your password for the first time.

  1. Open a web browser and type the following into the Internet address bar: registration.wananga.ac.nz

  2. You may see a pop-up log in box similar to these. If you do, you will need to log in with your username (which is your Awanuiārangi email address).

  3. If you are a new user, your password was sent to you in a welcome letter.
  4. Please type in your login details carefully. Your password is case sensitive, so don’t forget any capital letters.
  5. Follow the prompts for the remainder of the process. Be sure to answer all the security questions honestly otherwise you may have difficulty recovering your password in the future. This is because you will be asked what the answer is to your secret question when you go to reset it. If you made your answer up, you won't remember it :)
  6. After registering yourself with the password reset portal, you can change or reset your password at any time. Please see the next section if you wish to change or reset your password now. We recommend that all new students change their passwords as soon as is practical.
