Choose Not to Bring Your Own Device
Students that are enrolled and accepted into full-time programs at The Royal Alberta College will receive a computer tablet on their orientation day. This device will be the primary device and all learning material will be installed onto this device, it will also have Google Classroom enabled on it and will allow students to interact in and outside the classroom with each other. Students are NOT required to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and bringing outside computers is not recommended, the tablet that will be used to store all information needed for class and practicums will become the property of the student upon graduation.
Students are permitted to bring their mobile phones and other devices to school, yet it is highly discouraged to use these forms of devices for school work.
