Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
To ensure our students have the most transformative learning experience, our programs are delivered using online and mobile technologies, allowing students to work with a Learning Management System (Moodle) in and out of the classroom, participate in collaborative learning environments, and enhance their digital literacy.
Greystone College’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy requires all students to bring their own laptop to use on campus. The laptop must meet or exceed the technical specifications outlined below.
Touch screen devices, such as smartphones, tablets and iPads, are great tools for learning and can be used to access course materials but will not be sufficient for completion of course assignments.
Chromebooks or Android devices are not recommended as they do not support all course-related software requirements, such as Safe Exam Browser (SEB). Students will not be able to take online tests on these devices.
