Learning Technology

Canterbury College embraces new learning technology.

The College offers a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program and support for Mobile Learning. This is supported by a Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas, that is available to all parents and students.

BYOD

The Canterbury College BYOD (Bring You Own Device) provides an opportunity for students to personalise their learning. As mobile devices are becoming more prevalent, students need to be able to access and utilise this technology to ensure their learning success. In 2016 all students in Years 4-12 are expected to participate in the BYOD program.
